The Sand, Gravel and Stone site consists of approximately 200 acres, and is located in Elkton, Cecil County, Maryland. The site was previously operated as a sand and gravel quarry under the name Maryland Sand and Gravelstone Company. Currently, the site is occupied by the Sand, Gravel, and Stone Company. It was reported that about three acres onsite were used for the disposal of waste processing water, sludge, still bottoms, and about 90 drums of solid and semisolid waste between 1969 and 1974. On July 16, 1974, 1,300 gallons of flammable products in drums were reportedly received and dumped. On August 5, 1974, 5,000 gallons of nonflammable materials were received at the site. Pits, excavated onsite, were used as surface impoundments, where approximately 700,000 gallons of waste were dumped. Remedial measures at the site will be implemented in two phases.
