Superfund Site Profile
The 10-acre Mathis Brothers Landfill (South Marble Top Road) site is located in Kensington, Georgia. It includes an area where a landfill operated from 1974 to 1980. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated debris, groundwater and soil resulting from landfill operations. EPA, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (Georgia EPD) and Velsicol, the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), 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. A water line connects nearby businesses and residents to the public water supply. By monitoring groundwater, inspecting the site and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, Georgia EPD and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
