The Taputimu Farm is a facility owned by the government of American Samoa and is the territory's primary repository of unused and out-dated agricultural chemicals and pesticides. The facility is constructed of plywood walls with a corrugated metal roof and is located approximately a quarter mile from a public beach. The remedial action alternative selected for this site involves repacking or overpacking the chemical/pesticide materials stored at the Taputimu Farm, decontaminating the storage facilities and sealing the decontaminated surfaces, and transporting all the waste materials to the U.S. mainland for disposal. The cost of this remedial action is estimated to be $160,000.
