Superfund Site Profile
The North Carolina State University (Lot 86 Farm Unit #1) site is located in Raleigh, North Carolina. It includes an area where North Carolina State University (NCSU) disposed of wastes from science laboratories and agricultural research facilities from 1969 to 1980. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1986 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from waste handling practices.
EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and NCSU, 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 and monitoring 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.
