Abstract:  THE 12-ACRE BOWERS LANDFILL SITE IS IN RURAL PICKAWAY COUNTY, OHIO, WITHIN THE SCIOTO RIVER FLOODPLAIN. FIFTEEN RESIDENCES LIE WITHIN A 0.5-MILE RADIUS OF THE SITE. INFORMATION ON THE TYPES AND QUANTITIES OF WASTE DISPOSED OF AT THE SITE IS NOT READILY AVAILABLE; HOWEVER, LANDFILL OPERATIONS, WHICH STARTED IN 1958, CONSISTED SOLELY OF MUNICIPAL REFUSE DISPOSAL UNTIL 1963. FROM 1963 TO 1968, HOWEVER, INDUSTRIAL REFUSE AND CHEMICAL WASTES WERE ALSO DISPOSED OF AT THE SITE. OPERATIONS ENDED IN 1968. THE PRIMARY CONTAMINANTS OF CONCERN AFFECTING THE SOIL, SEDIMENT, DEBRIS, AND GROUND WATER ARE VOCS INCLUDING PCE AND BENZENE, OTHER ORGANICS INCLUDING PAHS AND PCBS, METALS INCLUDING LEAD AND CHROMIUM, AND OTHER INORGANICS.

THE SELECTED REMEDIAL ACTION FOR THIS SITE INCLUDES REMOVAL OF SURFACE VEGETATION AND DEBRIS SUCH AS DOMESTIC WASTE AND DRUMS FOLLOWED BY OFFSITE DISPOSAL AT A HAZARDOUS WASTE LANDFILL OR SOLID WASTE LANDFILL IF WASTES ARE DETERMINED TO BE NONHAZARDOUS; EROSION CONTROLS INCLUDING SURFACE REGRADING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING AND EROSION; EXCAVATION AND DEWATERING OF DRAINAGE DITCH SEDIMENT FOLLOWED BY ONSITE DISPOSAL; REPLACEMENT OF THE DISCHARGE PIPE; CONSTRUCTION OF A SOIL AND CLAY CAP WITH QUARTERLY INSPECTIONS FOR LEACHATE AND GAS FORMATION; IMPLEMENTATION OF SITE ACCESS AND GROUND WATER USE RESTRICTIONS; AND GROUND WATER MONITORING. THE ESTIMATED PRESENT WORTH COST FOR THIS REMEDIAL ACTION IS $4,300,000, WHICH INCLUDES ANNUAL O&M COSTS OF $116,000.
 
Remedy:  AFTER EVALUATING ALL THE FEASIBLE ALTERNATIVES, US EPA IS SELECTING A REMEDY THAT CONSISTS OF FIVE COMPONENTS: (1) GROUND-WATER MONITORING; (2) SITE ACCESS RESTRICTIONS; (3) MANAGEMENT OF SURFACE DEBRIS; (4) EROSION CONTROL AND DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS; AND (5) A NATURAL CLAY COVER OVER THE LANDFILL.
