The 540-acre Fibers Public Supply Wells site is in Guayama, Puerto Rico. The site includes an active pharmaceutical plant (AWPI); two former manufacturing facilities, one of which encompasses two former settlement lagoons and a soil disposal area; and five public supply wells. The site overlies a class II aquifer. From 1966 to 1976, Fibers International Corporation (FIC) manufactured nylon fibers onsite. From 1976 to 1980, Chevron Chemical Company (CCCPR) expanded the operations of the FIC plant to include the production of polypropylene fibers. State and private site investigations in 1983 revealed the presence of elevated levels of organics and inorganics in soil and ground water. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses a final remedy for source contamination in the soil disposal area and ground water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are VOCs including PCE and TCE; other organics; metals including chromium and lead; and other inorganics including asbestos. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
