Superfund Site Profile
The 8-acre Elmore Waste Disposal site is located in Greer, South Carolina. The site includes an area used for drum disposal from 1975 to 1977. EPA placed the Site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from waste handling practices at the Site. EPA and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) 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. Nearby residents and businesses use public water for drinking and other household purposes. By treating and monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and SCDEHC continue to protect people and the environment from Site contamination.
