Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

The Leetown Pesticide site is located in Jefferson County, West Virginia. The site includes three separate parcels: the former Pesticide Pile Area, the former Pesticide Mixing Shed and the Crimm Orchard Packing Shed. Site activities included mixing, storing and using pesticides and insecticides. These activities contaminated soil with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, EPA determined that no further cleanup actions were necessary to protect human health and the environment. EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1996.
