SITE BACKGROUND

The Stauffer Chemical Co. (Cold Creek Plant) site is located in Bucks, Alabama. It includes the area where Stauffer Chemical Company (Stauffer) operated an agricultural chemical manufacturing facility beginning in 1966. The EPA placed the Ste on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1984 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment and soil resulting from manufacturing operations. The EPA, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) and Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc., the Site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to cleanup the Site in order to protect human health and the environment from contamination. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the Site. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By treating , site contaminants and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, the EPA, ADEM and the Site’s PRP continue to protect human health and the environment from site contamination.
