Abstract
The Cannon Engineering Corporation (CEC) Plymouth Site is located in Cordage Park, a business and industrial park bordering Plymouth Harbor, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The site consists of 2.5 acres which includes three above ground storage tanks, two of which are estimated to have nominal storage capacities in excess of 250,000 gallons each, and one which has an estimated 500,000 gallon capacity. The tanks were originally used for the storage of 6 marine fuel oil and bunker C oil. In 1976, CEC rented one tank for the reported storage of waste oil and later rented a second tank. Allegedly, CEC used the tanks to store hazardous wastes. In 1979, CEC was licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality Engineering (DEOE) to store motor oils, industrial oils and emulsions, solvents, laquers, organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, cyanide and plating waste, clay and filter media containing chemicals, plating sludge, oily solids and pesticides. Potential problems observed at the site included slow leakage at the bottom seams of one of the tanks; adequacy of earthen dikes surrounding the tanks; odor complaints; and leaks from tank side valves.
