Site Summary:
Federal Register Notice:  September 08, 1983

Conditions at listing (December 1982): The General Electric Co. Moreau Site, also known as Caputo Landfill, covers 40 acres in South Glen Falls, Saratoga County, New York. Wastes are scattered over the entire site. Also on the site are a small evaporation lagoon and a drum disposal area. Liquid PCB wastes were dumped into the lagoon, previously an open sand pit. Soil in the drum disposal area, which holds about 100 drums, is contaminated. Numerous private drinking wells and the public wells for Fort Edwards are in the area. Due to chemical contamination, treatment units have been installed in private wells south of the site.

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 action at the site.
