Redevelopment at the Site

The State Marine of Port Arthur Superfund site is a 17-acre industrial tract of land east of Port Arthur, Texas. In the 1960s and 1970s, parties used the site for municipal landfill and barge cleaning operations. In 1998, EPA listed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL). In 2001, EPA removed source materials from the site. Removal activities included waste removal, water treatment, oil/water separation, and sludge stabilization and off-site disposal. After completing the removal action, EPA determined that the site did not pose a risk to human health or the environment based on an industrial/commercial future land use scenario. EPA deleted the site from the NPL in 2012. The site owner is currently using the site as an industrial property for barge cleaning and metal scrapping activities.
