Superfund Site Profile
The 2.3-acre Arlington Blending & Packaging site is located in Arlington, Tennessee. It includes the area where the Arlington Blending & Packaging Company operated a pesticide formulation and packaging facility from 1971 to 1978. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1987 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), and 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. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By monitoring groundwater, implementing institutional controls and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, TDEC and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
