The Chisman Creek site is located near Grafton in York County, Virginia. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses operable unit two, which consists of three ponds (designated A, B, and C), the freshwater tributary, and the Chisman Creek estuary. The site is located within the watershed of Chisman Creek, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. Between 1957 and 1974, fly ash from the Virginia Power Yorktown Power Generating Station was disposed of in four abandoned sand gravel borrow pits located approximately two miles south of the generating station. The fly ash disposal areas, became known as the Chisman Creek Superfund site. Between 1971 and 1973, all fly ash in Area D was removed and deposited in Area C. Area D was reportedly filled with construction rubble generated during the construction of public utilities in the area at that time. The remedial action, begun in November 1987.
