The Seymour Recycling Corporation (SRC) operated a processing center for waste chemicals. Toxic and hazardous wastes, including solvents, metal finishing wastes, and other materials, accumulated on the site in 55-gallon drums, bulk tanks, and other containers. Wastes leaked and spilled from the drums creating fire and odor problems. A Consent Decree resulted in the removal of the upper one foot of contaminated soil from about 75 percent of the site's surface. Contaminated soil remains, however, and extends throughout the shallow and deep aquifer. The primary contaminants of concern include: VOCs, organics, TCE, DCE, benzene, toluene, and heavy metals. Selected remedies have been proposed and are included.
