Superfund Site Profile
The 30-acre Davis Timber Company site is located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The site includes the area where Davis Timber Company operated a wood-preserving facility from 1972 to the late 1980s. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2000 because of contaminated groundwater, soil and sediment resulting from facility operations. EPA and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) 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 cleaning up the site, EPA and MDEQ continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
