The 1.6-acre Fulton Terminals site is in Fulton, Oswego County, New York. The site is bordered to the west by the Oswego River, and a section of the site lies within the river's 100-year floodplain. Commercial and industrial operations are the primary land uses in the vicinity of the site. Spills and leaks of chemical wastes stored in eight tanks at the site resulted in soil and ground water contamination. In 1981, following a citation for not meeting Federal and State standards for the operation of a hazardous waste storage facility, Fulton Terminals initiated a cleanup which included emptying and removing four storage tanks. This remedy addresses the low levels of soil contamination remaining at the site and a plume of contaminated ground water which threatens the Oswego River. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including benzene, TCE, and xylenes; other organics including PAHs; and metals including arsenic. The selected remedial action for this site are included.
