The Broderick Wood Products Company (BWP) site, is located in Adams County, Colorado, and encompasses approximately 64 acres. It is situated in a primarily industrial area. The major site includes two surface impoundments and a total of 19 buildings and structures. Between 1947 and 1981, BWP operated a wood treatment facility to treat power poles, fence posts, railroad ties and other wood products. Records indicate that waste seepage was apparent just north of the site and became so extensive that the waste was burned off, starting in 1955. Another site inspection in December 1982 revealed the possibility of serious contamination at a trench in the vicinity of the surface impoundments that reportedly had only been used for the disposal of solid waste. The primary contaminants of concern from the impoundments affecting the soil and ground water are VOCs including benzene, organics including PAHs, PCPs, dioxins, and metals including lead.
