About the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative
This nationally coordinated effort provides EPA and its partners with a process to return Superfund sites to productive use. Learn more at Superfund Redevelopment Initiative.
Redevelopment at the Site
In 1987, Mills Gap Road Associates (MGRA) purchased the 53.54 acre CTS site. In 1997, MGRA sold 44.89 acres to the Biltmore Group, LLC and retained ownership of the remaining 8.65 acres. The Biltmore Group developed the 44.89 acres into a residential subdivision known as Southside Village. Historically, manufacturing activities were conducted at and limited to the 8.65-acre fenced portion of the site currently owned by MGRA. Redevelopment of the 8.65 acre parcel is not anticipated until cleanup activities are completed.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2018, EPA did not have economic data related to on-site businesses, or economic data were not applicable due to site use. View information about redevelopment economics at Superfund sites.
Activity and Use Limitations
At this site, activity and use limitations that EPA calls institutional controls are in place. Institutional controls play an important role in site remedies because they reduce exposure to contamination by limiting land or resource use. They also guide human behavior. For instance, zoning restrictions prevent land uses – such as residential uses – that are not consistent with the level of cleanup. For more background, see Institutional Controls.
Fencing surrounds the former plant and the area where the vapor extraction system is operating. The former plant area has been vacant since the mid-1990s.
