The Picillo Farm site is located in Coventry, Rhode Island, approximately 20 miles southwest of Providence. Drums containing hazardous wastes and bulk wastes were illegally disposed within an 8-acre area of the Picillo Farm over a period of months in 1977. A series of trenches--the northwest trench, northeast trench, west trench, south trench, and two slit trenches--were used for this activity. In September 1977, an explosion and fire at the site brought the dumping activities to the attention of regulatory agencies. Since September 1977, a number of investigations and remedial activities have been conducted at the site. PCBs, organics, and phenols were identified in onsite soil. The selected remedial actions are included.
