Superfund Site Profile
The 4-acre First Piedmont Corporation Rock Quarry Site is located in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Between 1970 and 1972, the First Piedmont Corporation leased the on-site rock quarry and used it as an industrial landfill. The business disposed of 65,000 cubic yards of waste material, including 15,000 gallons of liquid waste, in the quarry. The Virginia State Health Department ordered the landfill to close following a fire. Waste disposal activities contaminated soil and surface water with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
