The Sharon Steel (Midvale Tailings) site is a former ore milling operation facility in Midvale, Utah. Land use in the area is residential, urban, agricultural, and commerical. Onsite and offsite features include a mill site, a tailings area, and an offsite residential community that relies on drinking water supply wells. Tailings from these operations were deposited into onsite uncovered tailings piles, which have an estimated volume of 14,000,000 cubic yards. The State in 1982 identified elevated levels of metals within the tailings piles. It is estimated that over 242,000 cubic yards of soil in the residential community were contaminated by wind-blown tailings. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses remediation of offsite soil in the residential areas. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil are metals including arsenic, cadmium, and lead.
