H & H INC., BURN PIT
Superfund Site Profile
The one-acre H & H Inc., Burn Pit Superfund site is located in Hanover County, Virginia. Between 1960 and 1976, Haskell Chemical Company, located in Richmond, Virginia, used the area for the disposal of printing inks and paint manufacturing wastes. The company collected and transported wastes to the site in drums and dumped the drums into a shallow, unlined pit for burning. These activities contaminated soil, sediment and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989.
