The 70-acre Prewitt Abandoned Refinery site is an abandoned crude oil refinery near the City of Prewitt in McKinley County, New Mexico. From 1938 to 1957, various companies, including the Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) and El Paso Natural Gas (EPNG) Company, used the site for basic refining operations. The ROD addresses remediation of all contaminated media at the site as a final action. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sludge, and ground water are VOCs, including benzene, TCE, toluene, and xylenes; other organics, including PAHs; metals, including lead; and inorganics, including asbestos.
