The FMC Yakima Pit site is a former pesticide formulation facility in central Yakima County, Washington. The site consists of a 58,000 square foot fenced area on the northeastern portion of a 10-acre property. Pesticide dusts and liquids were manufactured onsite from 1951 to 1986, and between 1952 and 1969 wastes containing pesticides were disposed of in an onsite pit. Beginning in the 1970s, liquid products were formulated onsite, a process that used solvents, emulsifiers and stabilizers. The Record of Decision addresses the contamination that remains in the formulation areas and some contaminated soil in the former disposal pit, including 900 cubic yards of pesticide- and metal-contaminated soil and portions of buildings and other concrete structures that contain high levels of pesticide contamination. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are organics including pesticides and metals including chromium.
