The Berlin and Farro Liquid Incineration site occupies 40 acres approximately 3.5 miles south of the City of Swartz Creek, Michigan. A liquid waste incinerator was operated at the site from 1971 until the late 1970's, during which time liquid wastes were incinerated, stored in open lagoons and underground tanks and poured into agricultural drains. Solid wastes, contained primarily in crushed drums, were buried in various on-site locations. The selected alternative to mitigate the uncontrolled hazardous waste problem at the Berlin and Farro site involves four areas. They are: excavation of the existing drum landfill and disposal of sludge, crushed drums, liquid wastes and visibly contaminated soil at a RCRA facility; solids to be landfilled and liquids to be incinerated. Also, excavation of the paint sludge trench and disposal of sludges and visibly contaminated soil at a RCRA facility. Also, excavation of the agricultural drains leaving the site and miscellaneous areas of visible contamination, and disposal of wastes, sludge and visibly contaminated soil at a RCRA facility. Supplemental sampling will be performed to determine if waste has migrated below visibly contaminated areas.
