Superfund Site Profile
The 8.6-acre Mallory Capacitor Co. site is located in Waynesboro, Tennessee. It includes the area where City Chemical Company operated a footwear production facility and P.R. Mallory operated an electrical capacitor manufacturing facility from the late 1940s to 1984. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), and the site’s 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. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. By treating and monitoring groundwater, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, TDEC and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
