Superfund Site Profile
The 55-acre Golden Strip Septic Tank Service site is located in Greenville, South Carolina. It includes the area where a waste hauling and disposal service operated from 1960 to 1975. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1987 because of contaminated soil, sludge and surface water resulting from facility operations. EPA, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), and the Golden Strip Task Group, 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. By monitoring groundwater, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, SCDHEC and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the NPL in 1998.
