The Miami Drum Services site is a one acre inactive drum recycling facility located in Dade County, Florida. The soils on site were contaminated by phenols, heavy metals, oil and grease, pesticides, and other materials from the drum cleaning operation. A plume of undetermined composition has been identified in the groundwater underlying the area, which has a high (one to three feet) water table. A 1981 suit, filed by Dade County against MDS, Inc., seeks injunctive relief, recovery of all funds spent for site cleanup, compensatory damages for harm to natural resources, and punitive damages. The cost-effective remedial alternatives selected for this site includes: soil excavation to the extent dictated by engineering and scientific judgment, and transportation and off-site disposal of contaminated soils, as the First Operable Unit. The Second Operable Unit will address the groundwater contamination plume through a cooperative agreement work plan to conduct an RI/FS. The capital cost for the selected alternative was estimated to be $1,568,660.09.
