HAVERHILL MA — T Ford Company, Inc. (TFCI) was contracted to perform site investigation operations at an unregulated drum disposal area. TFCI provided all labor and equipment and implemented a full time health and safety air monitoring program. TFCI encountered, handled, overpacked and staged over two hundred fifty drums throughout the course of the work. Drums were found at depths ranging from two feet to eighteen feet below the ground surface. Drums were found to contain both liquids and solids and the waste streams encountered included PCB oils, toluene, xylene, benzene and cyanide. Much of the work was performed under Level "C" working conditions with a portion of the work performed using supplied air under Level "B" conditions.
