EPA Superfund Program: T.H. AGRICULTURE & NUTRITION CO. (ALBANY PLANT), ALBANY, GA

Superfund Site Profile

The T. H. Agriculture & Nutrition Co. (Albany Plant) site includes an area where two former pesticide formulation facilities operated from the 1950s and 1960s until the 1980s. EPA placed the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated ground water, sediment and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (Georgia EPD) and 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. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. Cleanup actions have addressed the primary threats associated with soil. Contaminated groundwater does not extend beyond the site’s boundary. The business currently operating on site does not use groundwater for drinking water purposes. Groundwater contamination has an increasing vertical trend within the site's boundary. Currently, investigations are underway on a new form of action to implement at the site.
