The Craig Farm Drum site covers approximately 117 acres near the village of Fredericksburg in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. The area around the site is dominated by farmland and forest, and a creek crosses the southern portion of the site. The site consists of two abandoned strip mine pits which were later used for disposal of distillation residue containing resorcinol and other high polymers. From 1958 to 1963 the Koppers Chemical Co. disposed of 2,500 tons of resorcinol production residue in 55-gallon drums in the pits. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are organics including benzene and phenol, inorganics, and metals including lead and chromium. The selected remedial action for the site includes the excavation of 32, 000 cubic yards of soil from the two disposal pits and surrounding area with onsite treatment using solidification; placement of treated soil in a newly excavated and lined onsite landfill followed by capping; passive collection of ground water using a seep interceptor system with offsite treatment; and performing a ground water verification study.
