The Hastings Ground Water Contamination site is a contaminated aquifer in the vicinity of the City of Hastings, Adams County, Nebraska. The site consists of several source areas, referred to as subsites, contaminated with various chlorinated volatile industrial chemicals. The Record of Decision addresses the Well Number 3 subsite which consists of a ground water plume contaminated with carbon tetrachloride emanating from a former grain storage facility. The State first identified volatile organic contamination in Well Number 3 in 1983. Between 1986 and 1989 EPA conducted a field investigation which identified the grain storage area as the source of ground water contamination probably resulting from accidental spills of liquid fumigants used during grain storage. This interim source control operable unit was developed to reduce the migration and volume of volatile contaminants present in the soil. The primary contaminants of concern in the soil which impact the ground water are VOCs including carbon tetrachloride and chloroform.
