Site Summary:
Federal Register Notice:  July 22, 1987

Conditions at proposal (January 22, 1987): The Jones Sanitation Site covers about 10 acres in a rural area of Hyde Park, Dutchess County, New York. One owner operated the site from approximately 1956 to 1977, when a new owner/operator took over. From the early 1960s through 1979, industrial liquid wastes and sludges generated by Alfa-Laval (formerly DeLaval Separator Co. of Poughkeepsie), a manufacturer of mechanical separating equipment, were accepted. These materials consisted primarily of oils and greases but also included acids, alkalies, solvents, metals from plating operations, pigments, phenol, methylene chloride, chloroform, trichloroethylene, and naphthalene. About 77,500 gallons per month of liquid industrial waste from Alfa-Laval were disposed of at the site between 1972 and 1979, according to a report prepared by an Alfa-Laval consultant. The site now disposes only of septic waste collected by commercial firms.

In the early disposal operations, wastes were dumped into long unlined pits in a 2-acre area. The pits were dug to various depths; some were below the water table, which is 5 to 7 feet from the surface. Wastes were allowed to seep into the ground through subsurface sands and gravels. When a pit was completely filled with liquids, it was filled with gravel and abandoned. According to the Dutchess County Health Department, disposal operations were poorly controlled, and as many as 30 pits may have been in use at one time. Recently, the present owner excavated the pits and piled the contents on the ground without a liner. The site is unfenced and within sight of a public road, making it possible for people and animals to come into direct contact with hazardous substances.

The septic wastes presently being accepted are first chlorinated and the solids then stabilized in a pond. The liquid passes through two consecutive sand filters. The effluent is again chlorinated and discharged into tile fields on the site. Sludge remaining in the pond is composted on an asphalt pad on the site.

In June 1978, the owner/operator submitted an application for a permit under the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES). The State denied the permit. A current SPDES permit application is for subsurface discharge of septic waste. All applications and permits for sludge removed from the pond have been submitted to the State.

On-site wells contain trichloroethylene, acetone, and other contaminants, according to tests conducted in 1985 by a consultant to the owner. At least 23 wells serving 9,500 people are within 3 miles of the site, the nearest within 1,000 feet.

Surface water is threatened because Maritje Kill and associated wetlands cross the property about 375 feet downgradient of the disposal area. Surface water within 3 miles downstream of the site is used for recreational activities.
