Superfund Site Profile
The 1-acre property where Geigy Chemical Corp. (Aberdeen Plant) and its predecessors operated is located in Aberdeen, North Carolina. It includes the area where pesticide blending, formulation and retail sale operations took place from 1947 to 1989. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) 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 treating groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, NCDENR and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
