Superfund Site Profile
The SCRDI Dixiana site includes an area where South Carolina Recycling and Disposal, Inc. (SCRDI) stored drums containing industrial wastes beginning in 1978. EPA placed the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from waste handling practices. EPA, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), 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 near the site. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By treating and monitoring groundwater and placing institutional controls on the surrounding properties, EPA, SCDHEC and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
