EPA Superfund Program: KALAMA SPECIALTY CHEMICALS, BEAUFORT, SC

Superfund Site Profile

The Kalama Specialty Chemicals site is located in Beaufort, South Carolina. It includes an area where two chemical companies operated from 1973 to 1979. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1984 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), and Goodrich, 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. By treating and sampling groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, SCDHEC and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
