Superfund Site Profile
The 37-acre Aberdeen Pesticide Dumps site is located in Moore County, North Carolina. It includes five separate areas impacted by industrial formulation and blending of pesticides and related waste disposal practices. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated debris, groundwater, soil, sediment and surface water resulting from facility operations. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs), 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 nearby. By treating and monitoring groundwater, 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.
