Description Soil, water, and sediment samples were collected March 23-24, 1988, from Soil and Crop, Inc., Othello, and analyzed for nutrients, metals, volatile organics, pesticides, and herbicides to determine contamination levels resulting from spills and/or rinsate disposal at the facility. Results indicated that contamination of surface soils with nitrates, ammonia, several metals, pesticides, and herbicides is widespread throughout the site. A wet well located in the main mixing building has also been heavily contaminated with a similar variety of constituents, in addition to, several volatile organic compounds. All on-site liquid storage and mixing tanks were empty at the time of investigation.
