The 171-acre site is located in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.  The site is just south of the Wolf River at the North Hollywood Street bridge.

EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment, soil, solid waste and fish tissue resulting from waste disposal operations.  EPA took the site off the NPL in 1997 after the site cleanup.

EPA, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and the North Hollywood Dump Steering Committee, 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. By monitoring groundwater, surface water and fish tissue, implementing fishing restrictions on the former dredge pond area and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, TDEC and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
