Description: This site is located next to the former White Alice installation. The hillside to the north of the quarry was used as a disposal area for drums and debris. Approximately 100 55-gallon drums and about 7 cubic yards of soils containing PCBs were removed in 1992. The quarry was used as a disposal area from 1980 to 1982. This is one of several possible locations where PCBs may have been disposed of from the White Alice station demolition.
