The 1.4-acre Pagano Salvage site is in Los Lunas, Valencia County, New Mexico, and consists of a family-run salvage business and a residence. During 1983, salvage operations at the site included purchasing 'high technology' scrap material from Federal facilities such as transformers, drums containing waste fluids, and capacitors. Site inspections in 1984, 1985, and 1986 revealed several areas of soil contamination in the yard due to leaks from scrap materials, which released PCB-contaminated oil into the soil. These areas included two surface burn areas, a stained soil area, and a surface pool of oil. In 1990, EPA removed approximately 5,100 cubic yards (i.e., soil in excess of 10 mg/kg PCBs based on TSCA cleanup policy) of contaminated soil and debris for disposal in an approved RCRA facility offsite. Soil containing less than 10 mg/kg PCB was covered with a 10-12 inch soil cover. Soil sampling has confirmed that this removal has resolved the PCB contamination at the site and EPA proposes no additional remedial action. Based on this rationale, there are no primary contaminants of concern affecting the site. The selected remedial action for the site is a no action remedy with ground water monitoring for one year at the request of the State.
