The Cemetery Dump Site is located in Oakland County, Michigan, approximately 35 miles northwest of Detroit. The 4 acre site was once used as a sand and gravel pit which has been backfilled and cleared. Citizen reports allege that approximately 300 to 600 barrels were dumped and buried onsite in the late 1960s or early 1970s. In September 1981, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources excavated and transported offsite approximately 20 to 30 barrel fragments. Analysis of the barrel contents indicated the presence of paint sludges, solvents, PCBs and oils. This ROD is a source control remedial action that includes excavation and disposal of approximately 250 drums at an offsite RCRA facility. Total capital cost for the selected remedial action is estimated to be $1,883,261. Any additional remedial actions will be addressed in a separate Record of Decision upon completion of the RI/FS.
