The Stringfellow Acid Pits site is located in Riverside County, five miles northwest of the City of Riverside and one mile north of the community of Glen Avon. The site was operated by the Stringfellow Quarry Company from August 21, 1956 to November 19, 1972 as a hazardous waste disposal facility. Approximately 34 million gallons of industrial wastes, primarily from metal finishing, electroplating and DDT production, were deposited in evaporation ponds on site. The disposal area totals 17 acres. The selected interim remedial measure includes installation of an on-site pretreatment system consisting of lime precipitation for heavy metals removal and granular activated carbon treatment for organics removal. Pretreatment will be followed by discharge to a publicly owned treatment works (POTW) system. Also, additional interceptor and monitoring wells will be installed to extract contaminated down gradient ground water.
