The 143-acre Sarney Farm site includes a former 5-acre landfill in Amenia, Dutchess County, New York. Land use in the area is agricultural and includes wetlands. The site overlies a bedrock aquifer, which is currently used as a drinking water source. In 1968, the portion of the site that included a 5-acre sanitary landfill was purchased by Harris Haul-A-Way. Site studies by private parties have identified two trench areas used for hazardous waste disposal, and acting as localized sources of onsite soil contamination. In both areas, soil contaminants have infiltrated into the onsite ground water, but only in limited amounts. One of these areas is addressed in the Record of Decision (ROD). The ROD addresses the remediation of onsite contaminated soil, debris, and ground water in two source areas. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are VOCs including toluene; other organics including pesticides; and metals including lead.
