Superfund Site Profile
The Jadco-Hughes Facility site is located in Belmont, North Carolina. It includes an area where C.A. Hughes operated a solvent reclamation and storage facility from 1971 to 1975 and Jadco stored chemical waste drums in 1975. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1986 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations and waste handling practices at the site. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP) Steering Committee, a subset of the site’s PRP Group, 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. A water line connects nearby residences and businesses to the public water supply. By treating groundwater and soil, placing institutional controls on the site property, and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, NCDENR and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
