Superfund Site Profile
The 80-acre Holcomb Creosote Co. site is located in in Yadkinville, North Carolina. It includes an area where Holcomb Creosote Company operated a wood-treating facility from the 1950s to 2009. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2012 because of contaminated soil, sediment, groundwater, surface water and on-site structures resulting from facility operations. EPA and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) have taken steps to clean up the site to protect people and the environment from contamination. EPA conducted emergency response activities in 2011 to stop contamination from spreading off site. EPA and NCDENR continue to make sure people and the environment are protected from site contamination through site investigations and studies.
