The 22-acre Whitmoyer Laboratories site is located in Jackson Township, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. In 1964 widespread ground water contamination was discovered onsite leading to the placement of concentrated wastes in a concrete vault and the initiation of ground water pumping and treatment. In 1987 an EPA investigation revealed that approximately 69,000 gallons of concentrated liquids had been abandoned onsite in 18 tanks and 14 piping units. The selected interim remedial action for the site includes consolidating, transporting offsite, and then treating, using thermal treatment, biodegradation or recycling, approximately 69,000 gallons of concentrated liquid wastes at a permitted RCRA facility, followed by disposing of treated water in offsite surface water and disposing of solid residues in an offsite landfill; decontaminating 32 tanks and approximately 2,000 feet of piping to meet RCRA Subtitle C closure standards and disposing of the tanks and piping onsite; and treating and disposing of the cleaning agent residues offsite at RCRA-permitted facilities.
