The Leetown Pesticide site is located in northeast West Virginia, approximately 8 miles south of Martinsburg, West Virginia. The 'site' is actually composed of a number of areas affected by surface disposal of pesticides, agricultural use of pesticides, and landfilling. A total of eight specific areas of waste disposal or accumulation were identified during the initial RI study. Of these eight areas, two were the result of alleged disposal of pesticide-contaminated debris from a fire that occurred in 1975 at the Miller Chemical Company. These two areas include the former pesticide pile and the suspected pesticide landfarm areas. Four of the contaminated areas are associated with former use of the land for orchard production. The two remaining sites are active landfills.
