Abstract:  THE MIDDLETOWN ROAD SITE IS A PRIVATELY OWNED WASTE DUMP, CONSISTING OF APPROXIMATELY 2.3 ACRES, LOCATED OFF MARYLAND ROUTE 50 NEAR ANNAPOLIS, ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, MARYLAND. THE SITE OPERATED AS A DUMP, PRIMARILY FOR RUBBLE AND CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS, FOR SEVERAL DECADES WITHOUT PROPER STATE PERMITS. IN 1981, IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT APPROXIMATELY 40 DRUMS AND FOUR DUMPSTER LOADS OF SUSPECTED HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES WERE ON THE SITE.

ON JUNE 24, 1983, $384,000 IN CERCLA MONEY WAS ALLOCATED FOR IMMEDIATE REMOVAL MEASURES TO EXCAVATE AND REMOVE HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES AND CONTAMINATED SOIL. THE REMOVAL ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED AT THE SITE CONSISTED OF; THE REMOVAL OF CONTAMINATED SOIL AND 5-GALLON PAILS OF MARINE PAINT; ADDITIONAL SOIL SAMPLING TO CONFIRM ADEQUATE CONTAMINANT REMOVAL; INSTALLATION OF SIX GROUND WATER MONITORING WELLS AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE SITE; DRUM SAMPLING, TESTING AND RELOCATION OF ONE MILLION TIRES ON THE SITE IN ORDER TO CONDUCT A MORE COMPREHENSIVE SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATION. MATERIAL REMOVED DURING THE IMMEDIATE REMOVAL ACTION INCLUDED 68 DRUMS, 70 CONTAMINATED TIRES, AND 610 TONS OF CONTAMINATED SOIL.

A REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE WHETHER ANY REMEDIAL ACTION WOULD BE NEEDED BEFORE DELETING THE SITE FROM EPA'S NATIONAL PRIORITIES LIST. BASED ON THE FINDINGS OF THE RI, NO RISK TO RECEPTORS VIA DIRECT CONTACT, INHALATION, OR INGESTION WAS FOUND. THEREFORE, A NO ACTION ALTERNATIVE HAS BEEN RECOMMENDED, SINCE THERE ARE NO RELEASES FROM THE MIDDLETOWN ROAD SITE WHICH MAY THREATEN PUBLIC HEALTH. THE STATE OF MARYLAND WILL MONITOR ONSITE WELLS AS A PART OF ITS EXISTING CLOSED WASTE SITE INSPECTION SCHEDULE.
 
Remedy:  - NO ACTION WITH REGARD TO REMEDIATION ON SITE, AS THE RI/FS HAS CONFIRMED THAT THE EMERGENCY ACTION WAS COMPLETE AND THERE ARE NO RELEASES FROM THE MIDDLETOWN ROAD SITE WHICH MAY THREATEN PUBLIC HEALTH.
- THE STATE OF MARYLAND TO MONITOR ONSITE WELLS AT LEAST ANNUALLY AS A PART OF THEIR EXISTING CLOSED WASTE SITE INSPECTION SCHEDULE.
