The 4.2-acre Pesses Chemical Company site is located in Tarrant County, Ft. Worth, Texas. The site is in a light industrial and commercial area with an estimated 19,500 people residing or working within a one-mile radius. In June 1979, the Pesses Company began operations to reclaim cadmium and nickel from dry-cell batteries and metal sludges. In January 1981, site operations were discontinued. Heavy metals contamination from airborne dust and surface water runoff are the main potential threats at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, buildings and equipment, and debris are metals including cadmium, lead and nickel. The selected remedial action for the site includes excavation of contaminated offsite soil and wastes, and consolidation with onsite contaminated soil, followed by in situ stablization; decontamination of the metal warehouse and equipment with resultant solid wastes combined with the soil remediation, and waters treated and discharged into the sewer system; offsite disposal of drums and debris, as well as equipment that cannot be adequately cleaned, and offsite deep well injection of wastewater above POTW discharge requirements; and cleaning and sealing the sumps.
