EPA Superfund Program: ROADSIDE PCB SPILL, 210 MILES OF ROADS, NC

Superfund Site Profile

The Roadside PCB Spill site includes an area where parties disposed of waste transformer oil along highways in North Carolina from June to August 1978. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated soil resulting from waste handling practices. 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. EPA took the site off the NPL in 1986. EPA does not anticipate additional work at the site.
