The 20-acre Stoker Company site is a land treatment unit for wastes resulting from cleaning pesticide applicators. Located in Imperial, California, the site includes contaminated groundwater and soil. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, EPA is evaluating the scope of any additional investigations pending the area’s final listing on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL).
What Has Been Done to Clean Up the Site?
The site is being addressed through federal, state and potentially responsible party (PRP) actions.
What Is the Current Site Status?
Local authorities closed a nearby pond in 1988 after discovering contaminants in dead birds and fish. Removal actions, or short-term cleanups, included the removal and disposal of 300 tons of contaminated soil. Following the site’s listing on the NPL, EPA will evaluate the scope of additional investigations, consider cleanup approaches and complete remedial actions.
