Superfund Site Profile
The Brantley Landfill site includes the area where Barmet Corporation operated a landfill from 1978 to 1980. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of air, groundwater, sediment, soil and surface water contamination resulting from landfill operations. EPA, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP) and Barmet Corporation (now Commonwealth Aluminum Concast, Inc.), 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. By treating groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, KDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
