The Ordnance Works Disposal site, also known as the Morgantown Ordnance Works, is located one mile south of Morgantown, West Virginia. Remediation focuses on the waste disposal area, which consists of an inactive landfill, two former lagoons and the surrounding impacted area, and a scraped area of bare soil. The landfill was reportedly used from 1942 until 1962 for the disposal of various solid chemical wastes. Waste materials identified included: construction debris, slag, ash, and catalyst pillets, with arsenic and carcinogenic PAHs (CPAHs) detected in the soils at concentrations exceeding risk-based cleanup levels. CPAHs have been identified at levels exceeding cleanup standards in the area adjacent to the lagoons. The scraped area was an active disposal area for solid wastes; arsenic and CPAHs exceed the proposed cleanup levels. The selected remedial actions for this site are detailed. The estimated present worth cost for the remedial action is $6,718,000.
