Superfund Site Profile
The 3-acre Distler Brickyard site is located in West Point, Kentucky. The site includes an area where a brick manufacturer operated from the late 1800s to the mid-1970s and waste storage operations took place from 1976 to 1979. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from operations at the site. EPA, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP) and 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. By collecting additional data and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, KDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
