Superfund Site Profile
The Rochester Property site includes an area where waste disposal operations took place in 1971 and 1972. 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. Following the removal of wastes at the site in 1990, EPA determined only groundwater contamination remained at the site. EPA, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), and the site’s primary 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. The PRP cleaned up the site to levels that support unrestricted use and unrestricted exposure. EPA does not anticipate additional work at this site.
