Abstract:  THE BIG D CAMPGROUND SITE IS IN KINGSVILLE, ASHTABLA COUNTY, OHIO. THE SITE CONSISTS OF A 1.2-ACRE LANDFILL CREATED OUT OF A FORMER SAND AND GRAVEL QUARRY. FROM 1964 TO 1976 THE SITE OWNER ACCEPTED APPROXIMATELY 28,000 CUBIC YARDS OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS FOR DISPOSAL WHICH INCLUDED UP TO 5,000 DRUMS CONTAINING SOLVENTS, CAUSTICS, AND OILY SUBSTANCES. A 1986 REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION IDENTIFIED THE LANDFILL AS THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF CONTAMINATION IN SOIL OUTSIDE THE LANDFILL AND GROUND WATER UNDERLYING THE LANDFILL. GROUND WATER CONTAMINATION IS OF SIGNIFICANT CONCERN BECAUSE IT IS MIGRATING TOWARDS THE DRINKING WATER SUPPLY WELLS OF NEARBY RESIDENCES AND CONNEAUT CREEK WHICH IS ADJACENT TO AND SOUTH OF THE SITE. THE PRIMARY CONTAMINANTS OF CONCERN AFFECTING THE SOIL AND GROUND WATER ARE VOCS INCLUDING PCE AND TCE, OTHER ORGANICS, AND METALS INCLUDING CHROMIUM AND LEAD.

THE SELECTED REMEDIAL ACTION FOR THIS SITE INCLUDES REMOVING AND INCINERATING UP TO 5,000 BURIED DRUMS, BULK WASTES, AND UP TO 30,000 CUBIC YARDS OF CONTAMINATED SOIL FOLLOWED BY ONSITE DISPOSAL OF NONHAZARDOUS ASH RESIDUE; PUMPING AND TREATMENT OF 40,000,000 TO 60,000,000 GALLONS OF GROUND WATER USING AN ONSITE GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON SYSTEM FOLLOWED BY ONSITE DISCHARGE TO CONNEAUT CREEK; AND GROUND WATER AND SURFACE WATER MONITORING. THE ESTIMATED PRESENT WORTH COST FOR THIS REMEDIAL ACTION IS $39,000,000, WHICH INCLUDES ANNUAL O&M COSTS OF $320,000.
 
Remedy:  THE SELECTED REMEDY ADDRESSES ALL RISKS POSED BY CONTAMINATION IN THE SOURCE AREA (LANDFILL) AND GROUND WATER. THE SOURCE AREA WILL BE EXCAVATED AND INCINERATED AND THE GROUND WATER WILL BE COLLECTED AND TREATED. THE MAJOR COMPONENTS OF THE REMEDY INCLUDE;

* DEED RESTRICTION
