Background

The Avtex Fibers, Inc. site is located in Front Royal, Virginia. The area includes a 440-acre plant that manufactured rayon and other synthetics from 1940 to 1989. Plant waste disposed in on-site impoundments and fill areas contaminated groundwater, soil and the Shenandoah River with hazardous chemicals. The site was added to the Superfund program's National Priorities List in 1986. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance continues.
