The 12-acre Bowers Landfill site is in rural Pickaway County, Ohio, within the Scioto River floodplain. Fifteen residences lie within a 0.5-mile radius of the site. Information on the types and quantities of waste disposed of at the site is not readily available; however, landfill operations, which started in 1958, consisted solely of municipal refuse disposal until 1963. From 1963 to 1968, however, industrial refuse and chemical wastes were also disposed of at the site. Operations ended in 1968. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris, and ground water are VOCs including PCE and benzene, other organics including PAHs and PCBs, metals including lead and chromium, and other inorganics. The selected remedial action for the site is described.
