Superfund Site Profile
The Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot (Depot) is located in Port Royal, South Carolina. It is an active United States Marine Corps installation. The installation is a recruit training facility for the U.S. Marine Corps. The U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, EPA and the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) have investigated conditions and taken steps to clean up the Depot in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. The Depot's contamination does not threaten people living and working on or near the Depot. By cleaning up and monitoring soils, sediments, and groundwater, enforcing land use controls, and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, the Navy, EPA and SCDHEC continue to protect people and the environment from contamination.
