Superfund Site Profile
The 9-acre Cape Fear Wood Preserving site is located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The site includes the area where Cape Fear Wood Preserving Company operated a wood-preserving facility from 1953 to 1978. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1987 because of contaminated groundwater, soil, sediment and surface water resulting from facility operations. EPA and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) 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 and monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and NCDENR continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
