Superfund Site Profile
The 18-acre Amnicola Dump site is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It includes an area used for construction debris disposal from 1970 to 1973. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated debris, 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. In 1996, following cleanup activities, EPA took the site off the NPL.
