Site Summary:
Federal Register Notice:  August 30, 1990

Conditions at proposal (June 24, 1988): The Reilly Tar & Chemical Corp. Site covers 4 acres in Dover, Tuscarawas County, Ohio. The facility, which operated during 1932-56, included a coking plant and foundry built on top of an area that had been filled with slag. The operations involved coal tar, including creosote wastes, according to information Reilly provided to EPA.

Soil and monitoring wells installed by EPA show high levels of creosote constituents, including naphthalene, fluoranthene, pyrene, 2-methylnaphthalene, and phenanthrene, according to EPA tests conducted in 1985.

The site is located on the sand and gravel deposits of the Tuscarawas River basin. The aquifer in the deposits is the sole source of drinking water for about 28,700 people served by the municipal water systems of Dover and New Philadelphia. An additional 4,000 people obtain drinking water from private wells within 3 miles of the site.

The site is not completely fenced, making it possible for people and animals to come into direct contact with hazardous substances.

The property is presently owned by Shenango Foundry and is inactive.

Status (August 30, 1990): The site was fenced in September 1988 under a Consent Order with EPA.
