The Smith's Farm site is a 560-acre property in a rural area of Bullitt County, Kentucky. Within the 560-acre property there is a 37.5-acre landfill that, until recently, was permitted by the State for the disposal of solid waste. The owner of the landfill was cited at various times by the State for permit violations. The property also includes an 80-acre upgradient of the permitted landfill on a mile-long ridge between two intermittent creeks where the unpermitted disposal of drums containing hazardous waste occurred over a 20-year period. EPA investigations from 1979 to 1984 resulted in the removal of 6,000 surface drums containing hazardous waste including PCB-contaminated waste. This remedy addresses contaminated onsite soil, sediment, and drums within the 80-acre area. A second operable unit will address the other suspected areas of drum disposal. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and sediment are organics including PCBs and PAHs, and metals including lead.
