The Re-Solve, Inc. site was used as a solvent reclamation facility for approximately 24 years until operations ceased in 1980. High concentrations of PCB's, volatile organics and heavy metals have been measured. These contaminants are migrating off-site via surface runoff and ground water. The contaminated ground water plume is migrating towards a recreational pond which drains into a lake designated as a secondary water supply for the City of Fall River. In addition, the site is located over an aquifer which serves as a recharge area for a portion of the Town of North Dartmouth where a new municipal well is scheduled to be installed. The cost-effective remedial action for this site includes: removing contents of four unlined lagoons, soil from 'hot spots', and soil from a former oil spreading area for disposal off-site at a RCRA approved facility. Capping of the entire 6-acre site is also included. The estimated capital cost for the selected alternative is $3,050,000. Annual operation and maintenance costs were estimated to be $36,000.
