Remedial Design-Stage Optimization Review Report: Sandy Beach Ground Water Plume Superfund Site, Tarrant County, Texas, EPA Region 6

The Sandy Beach Road Ground Water Plume Superfund Site, CERCLIS ID No. TXN000605649, is located within incorporated areas of Pelican Bay and Azle, Texas and an unincorporated portion of Tarrant County, Texas. The site is the location of a former unpermitted landfill where existing ravines were used to deposit waste and later backfilled. Releases of trichloroethene (TCE) from the landfill migrated through shallow soil to the underlying Paluxy Aquifer, which is a local source of drinking water. The former landfill has since been converted to residential property with significant open space.
