Abstract The two-acre Aladdin Plating site is a former electroplating facility located in Scott and Abington Townships, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, approximately 1.5 miles north of the town of Chinchilla. Hazardous materials used in operations include sulfuric acid, chromic acid, cyanide, chromium, and other heavy metals. For 35 years, electroplating waste effluents containing heavy metals and other contaminants were discharged via a ditch and underground pipes to a shallow surface lagoon near the electroplating building. A fire destroyed the facility and ended operations in 1982. Three source areas of contamination have been identified: the site of the former plating facility building, a buried trench (presumably the building's floor drain), and the lagoon. In March 1987, EPA performed emergency response activities to remove significant immediate health threats. These responses included fencing contaminated zones and removing drums and vats containing hazardous wastes. The response action addresses only the remediation of the contaminated soil onsite. The ground water contamination will be addressed in a subsequent remedial action. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and ground water are arsenic, chromium, and lead. The selected remedial action for this site is included.
