The Wide Beach Development site is a small lake-side community located in the Town of Brant, in southern Erie County, New York. Between 1968 and 1978 approximately 155 cubic meters of waste oil, some of which was contaminated with Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs), was applied to the local roadways for dust control by the Wide Beach Homeowners Association. The source of the waste oil is being investigated, however, drums labeled as dielectric coolant were found onsite. In 1980, the installation of a sanitary sewer line in the development resulted in the excavation of highly contaminated soil from the roadways and their vicinity. Because it was not known at that time that a PCB problem existed, excavated soil was used as fill in several yards and in a community recreation area. Subsequent sampling revealed the presence of PCBs in the air, roadway dust, soil, vacuum cleaner dust, and water samples from private wells. The selected remedial action for this site is included.
