The Hastings Ground Water Contamination site (FAR-MAR-CO) is a contaminated aquifer in and near the city of Hastings, Adams County, Nebraska. The site consists of seven source areas, or subsites, contaminated with volatile industrial chemicals. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the Zone 2 portion of the FAR-MAR-CO subsite, which has been divided into two general areas of contamination referred to as Zone 1 and Zone 2. Zone 1, which includes grain elevators and areas to the north of the elevators, contains soil, soil-gas, and ground water contaminated with ethylene dibromide and carbon tetrachloride. Zone 1 contamination was addressed in a 1988 ROD. Zone 2, which is owned and operated by the Hastings Irrigation Pipe Company contains soil contamination primarily due to 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA) resulting from the disposal of cleaning solvents in Zone 2. Subsequent testing revealed that the concentration of TCA in Zone 2 had been reduced to a protective level. Response actions for ground water contamination near the FAR MAR CO subsite, however, will be addressed in subsequent remedial activities.
