EPA Superfund Program: WOOLFOLK CHEMICAL WORKS, INC., FORT VALLEY, GA

Superfund Site Profile

The Woolfolk Chemical Works, Inc. site is located in Fort Valley, Georgia. It includes an area where, beginning in 1910, several companies produced, packaged and stored herbicides and pesticides. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated groundwater and soils resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (Georgia EPD) and one of the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs) have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. By continuing to clean up and monitor the site and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and Georgia EPD continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
