ATTACHMENT 1.

Additional detail of the 1995 sample descriptions [2 and 12].
G202 Well water: From a hose connected to an outside spigot.
X101 Background soil: dark brown to black loam 18" east of the northern end of the chain link fence (which runs along the east side of the drive into the site) 0-2" deep.
X102/X103 Soil sample: 0-2" deep, composited, mixed, and split in field for duplicate analyses; dark brown to black clay with a hydrocarbon odor; collected 32 feet east of the timberline, at the western edge of the landfill, and 180' north of the tire pile on the southern edge of the fill area.
X201

Background sediment: collected about 600 feet upstream north of sediment sample X203; 3"-6" in depth, light brown to gray sandy clay.

X202 Sediment sample: drainage from landfill, 2"-4" in depth, light to dark brown silty clay, 54' west, downgradient along overland runoff route, of soil samples X102/X103.
X203 Sediment sample: collected at one of the probable points of entry leading from the landfill, 3"-6" in depth, light brown sandy clay; 65 feet west, downgradient, of sediment sample X202.
X204/X205

Sediment sample: downstream from probable point of entry, 3"-6" in depth, sandy clay with some black staining, 200 feet downstream, south, of sediment sample X203.

Comparison Values Used In Selecting Contaminants

Environmental Media Evaluation Guidelines (EMEGs) are developed for chemicals based on their toxicity, frequency of occurrence at National Priority List (NPL) sites, and potential for human exposure. They are derived to protect the most sensitive populations and are not cut-off levels, but rather comparison values. They do not consider carcinogenic effects, chemical interactions, multiple route exposure, or other media-specific routes of exposure, and are very conservative concentration values designed to protect sensitive members of the population.

Reference Dose Media Evaluation Guides (RMEGs) are another type of comparison value derived to protect the most sensitive populations. They do not consider carcinogenic effects, chemical interactions, multiple route exposure, or other media-specific routes of exposure, and are very conservative concentration values designed to protect sensitive members of the population.

Cancer Risk Evaluation Guides (CREGs) are estimated contaminant concentrations based on a one excess cancer in a million persons exposed to a chemical over a lifetime. These are also very conservative values designed to protect sensitive members of the population.
