The area of the Site associated with chemical manufacturing and waste disposal activity comprises approximately 18 acres. A number of removal and remedial actions have occurred to address buried drums and contaminated lagoons. Two lagoons remain at the site, and a ground water P&T system has been implemented as an interim remedy to extract and treat contaminated ground water and to manage the water levels in the remaining lagoons.
