Superfund Site Profile
The 5-acre Martin-Marietta, Sodyeco, Inc. site is located in Charlotte, North Carolina. It includes an area where industrial and landfill operations have taken place since the 1930s. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and Clariant Corporation, the site’s primary 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, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, NCDENR and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
