The 11.5-acre Summit National site is a former coal strip mine approximately 45 miles southeast of Cleveland. Summit National Liquid Services operated a solvent recycling and waste disposal facility on the site from 1973 to 1978. Solvents, paint sludges, phenols, cyanide, arsenic, and other liquid wastes were stored, incinerated, and buried or dumped during site operations. All onsite media are contaminated with a variety of organic and inorganic compounds, and investigations indicate that offsite areas also are affected. The primary contaminants of concern affecting soil, sediments, ground water, and surface water are VOCs including benzene, toluene, TCE and xylenes, other organics including phenols, PAHs and PCBs, and metals including arsenic and chromium. The selected remedial action for the site includes: excavation and onsite incineration of contaminated soil and sediments and the contents of approximately 1,600 buried drums and 4 tanks, with disposal of incinerator residuals in an onsite RCRA landfill; ground water pump and treatment and onsite surface water treatment and discharge of treated water to downgradient surface water; dismantling and onsite disposal of all onsite structures; ground water and surface water monitoring; and residence relocation.
