The 13-acre Solvent Savers site is a former chemical waste recovery facility in Lincklaen, Chenango County, New York. Between 1967 and 1974, a variety of wastes including solids, liquids, and sludges from a distillation process used to recover solvents were disposed of at the facility. Concurrently, a drum reconditioning process was also operated onsite. EPA and State investigations conducted from 1981 to 1982 revealed metals, VOCs, and other organic compounds including PCBs in onsite soil, and metals and VOCs in the ground water. In 1989, EPA required seven Potentially Responsible Parties (PRPs) to conduct an extensive removal action, which included removing and/or treating all drums and the associated contaminated soil. To the extent that the work is not completed by the PRPs in a timely fashion or to the extent that any soil contamination will remain on site following completion of that work, the remedial action documented in the ROD will be implemented. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are VOCs including PCE and TCE; other organics including carcinogenic and noncarcinogenic PAHs, PCBs, and phenol; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
