The 8-acre Picillo Farm site is located in Coventry, Rhode Island. The area was once part of a 100-acre pig farm. More than 10,000 drums of hazardous waste and an undetermined bulk volume of liquid chemicals were disposed of into several unlined trenches. The site was discovered in 1977, after a fire and an explosion. Cleanup of surface water and groundwater contamination has finished. Long-term operation and maintenance activities and environmental monitoring are ongoing.
