Between 1969 and 1970, Old Midland Products was in operation treating wood with creosote. Effluents containing pentachlorophenol (PCP) and polynuclear aromatic compounds were discharged into lagoons via a moveable discharge pipe. Approximately 9,000 to 21,000 cu yd of soil, 850 cu yd of drainage sediments, 450,000 gallons of ground water, 620,000 gallons of lagoon fluids, and 2,770 cu yd of lagoon sludges are contaminated with PCP and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. The selected remedial action for this site includes: onsite thermal destruction of the contaminated surface soils, lagoon sludges, and drainageway sediments with onsite disposal of waste residuals and a vegetated cover; and ground water pump and treatment using carbon adsorption. Cost estimates for these actions have not yet been fully developed and recovery enforcement action will be pursued at a later date.
