The Aidex site is an abandoned pesticide formulation facility, located about seven miles southeast of Council Bluffs, IA, covering an area of about 20 acres. The site is located in the Missouri River flood plain, and is within a two-mile radious of 42 shallow domestic water wells. The ground water under the site, an alluvial aquifer, has been found to be contaminated; the potential for contamination of nearby drinking water wells exists. Contamination of soil and on-site ground water have resulted from handling, storing and disposing of pesticide formulation process wastes and from post-firefighting operations. Site contaminants include significant concentrations of organophosphate, organochlorine, s-triazine and atrazine. The cost-effective Initial Remedial Measure (IRM) selected for this site includes: off-site disposal of bulk liquids and semi-solids by deep well injection and on-site drainage control during Phase I, and off-site disposal of solids, soils and debris from the site during Phase II. The probable capital cost of the IRM was estimated to be $718,595.
