  • Site Description
    Stage of Clean-up: Design Underway

    Conditions at listing (December 1982): Solvent Savers recovered solvents on a 13-acre site in Lincklaen, New York, from 1967 to 1974. The owner and operator hauled waste solvents from Syracuse area industries for reprocessing or disposal. Large quantities of bulk and drummed liquid, soil, and semisolid wastes may have been dumped into two 15-to 20-foot-deep pits on the property. There are also indications that a tanker was buried. EPA and the State have conducted extensive investigations of the site, including sampling of soil, surface water, stream sediment, and fish. Seven wells have been installed to monitor ground water, and buried drums have been surveyed. PCBS, CHLOROFORM, TETRACHLOROETHYLENE, PHENOL, NAPHTHALENE, and 1,2-DICHLOROBENZENE have been detected in ground water in the immediate vicinity. Status (July 1983): EPA is preparing a Remedial Action Master Plan outlining the investigations needed to determine the full extent of cleanup required at the site. It will guide further actions at the site.

    Sources of Contamination:
    • Recycling (Other than primary operation)
    • Storage - drums/containers of waste
    • Waste pile
    • Waste tank - above ground

  • Threats and Contaminants
    The ground water, surface water, sediments, and soil are contaminated with VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOCS) which include, primarily, TETRACHLOROETHENE, TRICHLOROETHYLENE, and 1,1,1-TRICHLOROETHANE. The soil and ground water contain inorganics, including ARSENIC, BARIUM, CADMIUM, CHROMIUM, and LEAD. The soil is also contaminated with POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS (PCBS). Direct contact with contaminated ground water, surface water, soil, or sediments may pose a health risk. Cows grazing in nearby pastures may be harmed if contaminants migrate to the fields.  More...
