The Queen City Farms (QCP) site is a 320-acre parcel of land located approximately 2.5 miles north of the town of Maple Valley in King County, Washington. The site includes a wooded area, a lake known as Queen City Lake, six industrial waste disposal ponds, an airstrip, several residences, and a gravel pit. The six ponds on the site were used for the disposal of industrial wastes from approximately 1955 to 1964. However, in 1980 six waste ponds were sampled by EPA contractors. The analyses of water, sludge, and sediment samples identified the presence of 44 prioritypollutants. Some of the contaminants found were: chromium, lead, PCBs, acids, volatile organics, toluene and trichloroethylene (TCE).
