The York Oil Company site, encompassing 17 acres, was located in Franklin County, New York. The now dissolved York Oil Company operated a waste oil recycling facility from 1964 to 1977. Crankcase industrial oils, some containing PCBs, were collected from sources throughout New England and New York, then stored and/or processed at the site in eight above-ground storage tanks, a series of three earthen-dammed settling lagoons, and at least one below-ground storage tank. During heavy rains and spring thaws, the oil-water emulsion from the lagoons would often overflow onto the surrounding lands. In lieu of paying damages to adjacent farm-owners, in 1964 the oil company purchased land in the area of the spills. The York Oil site contamination was first discovered in 1979 by a New York State Department of Transportation road crew.
