The 100 acre site is located about one mile west of Rose Center. The site is an upland area almost completely surrounded by wetlands. Rose Center has about 5,000 residents, all of whom depend upon groundwater as a drinking water source. An extimated 5,000 drums of illegal waste were place on, and into, 12 acres of the southwest part of the site. These drums mainly held paints, solvents, and polychlorinated byphenyls (PCBs). Another portion of the site was contaminated by lead battery sludges. Surface soils located along the southwestern edge of the site were contaminated with PCBs, lead, and volatile compounds (VOCs).
