Background

The 120-acre E.I. Du Pont De Nemours and Co., Inc. (Newport Pigment Plant Landfill) Superfund site (the Site) is located in the area of the town of Newport, New Castle County, Delaware.  The Site includes a paint pigment production facility currently operated by BASF Corporation (BASF), a groundwater treatment plant, two capped landfills, a solar array, a recreation park, wetland areas and portions of the Christina River. Decades of industrial waste disposal and plant operations contaminated soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater at the Site with heavy metals and chlorinated volatile organics.
