The 10-acre Big D Campground site is located at 3678 Creek Road, Kingsville, Ashtabula County, Ohio. It is north of Conneaut Creek and west of a campground. It was originally a sand and gravel pit. From 1964 to 1976, wastes, some known to be hazardous, were dumped in the pit. Leachate from the site contaminated the creek with chlorobenzene. Ground water was contaminated with volatile organic compounds and heavy metals including barium, chromium, and lead.

The final cleanup plan was selected in 1989. Olin Corp., owner of area ground-water rights, did the cleanup. It involved digging up all source material from the landfill and incinerating it on-site from 1992-1994; covering the former landfill; and pumping and treating ground water on-site. Eventually, some portions of the pump and treat system were no longer needed and have been eliminated. At the request of the company, a trial period is underway to see if monitored natural attenuation could be used in place of the pump and treat system.
