The New Castle Steel site (NCS) is a 3-acre disposal dump, located in New Castle, Delaware. The site is divided into two parts by a city drainage channel. One portion of the site, the inactive disposal area, occupies 1.3 acres, and the active area occupies 1.7 acres. Since operations began in 1907, solid waste generated by the Deemer Steel Company (DSC), located immediately across the NCS site, was piled and periodically spread over the surface of the disposal areas. The waste consisted primarily of black sand which may contain small quantities of bentonite and corn flour. Between 1973 and 1980, electric furnace dust was generated at the rate of 9.6 tons per year. In December 1980, the electric furnace dust was found to be EP-toxic for cadmium, chromium, and lead. The selected remedial action for this site is no further action. EPA will monitor surface wastes for lead until the site is deleted from the National Priorities List (NPL) and closed under the State closure law.
