Gallup's Quarry is a 29-acre abandoned gravel pit in Plainfield, Connecticut. In the 1970s, the owner accepted chemical wastes without a permit. Drums and free liquids were dumped at the site, including wastes containing volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, and heavy metals. Sampling detected contaminants in on-site monitoring wells. Long-term environmental monitoring is ongoing.
