Background

The Arrowhead Associates/Scovill Corp. Site is located approximately two miles southeast of Montross, Virginia in Virginia’s Northern Neck region. The Site, previously used for cosmetic case manufacturing from 1966 to 1979, occupies approximately 30 acres on the east side of State Route 3, featuring a manufacturing building, parking lot, and deep well on the western portion and five former sludge settling ponds and a treated wastewater pond on the eastern portion. Site soils and groundwater were contaminated via on-site residual process wastes, contaminated containers, and manufacturing equipment. EPA added the site to the Superfund program's National Priorities List in 1990.
