Superfund Site Profile
The Powersville Landfill site is located in Powersville, Georgia. It includes the area where Peach County operated a borrow area and a sanitary landfill from the 1940s to 1979. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1984 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from operations at the site. EPA, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (Georgia EPD), and Canadyne-Georgia Corporation and Peach County, the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site to protect people 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 near the site to the public water supply. By maintaining the landfill cover, placing institutional controls on the site property and nearby properties, and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, Georgia EPD and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
