Released under Phase II of Oak Ridge Health Studies Agreement. The Y-12 Oil Landfarm, which began operation in 1972, was developed to microbially degrade waste oils. Environmental sampling conducted by Bechtel National, Inc., and Y-12 has indicated the presence of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Uranium, and various chlorinated solvents within Oil Landfarm plots. These materials may be transported off-site via surface water, ground water, and sediment. A decription of runoff from the Oil Landfarm and receiving drainages is presented. Also included are the resutls of a recently completed sampling program which was designed to characterize the potential contamination of surface water and sediment near the Oil Landfarm.
