DELTA QUARRIES & DISPOSAL, INC./STOTLER LANDFILL
Antis, Logan Townships, Pennsylvania
Federal Register Notice: March 31, 1989
Conditions at proposal (June 10, 1986): The Delta Quarries & Disposal, Inc./Stotler Landfill Site covers 40 acres in Antis and Logan Townships, Blair County, Pennsylvania. The area is rural and sparsely populated. Since the 1960s, the site has disposed of municipal wastes. Originally, the site consisted of two adjacent landfills--Stotler and Parshall-Kruise. They are now one large fill owned by Delta Quarries & Disposal, Inc.
On-site wells and an off-site spring are contaminated with chlorine-containing organic chemicals, including trichloroethylene, according to tests conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources (PA DER). Nearby residential wells contain low levels of the contaminants. About 1,500 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of the site. Ground water flows to the northeast in the direction of the Little Juniata River, which is within 3 miles of the site. The river is used for recreational activities.
In November 1984, Delta Quarries entered into a Consent Order and Agreement with PA DER under which the company covered the landfill with soil.
Status (March 31, 1989): On October 9, 1987, Delta Quarries entered into a Consent Order with EPA under CERCLA Section 106. Under the order, the company is to conduct a remedial investigation/feasibility study to determine the type and extent of contamination at the site and identify alternatives for remedial action. The work is scheduled to be completed in 1990.
