Superfund Site Profile
The Site includes several properties is Statesville, North Carolina, where Burlington Industries, Inc. and Beaunit operated a textile facility, and Farmer’s Cooperative Exchange (FCX) operated a pesticide facility. EPA placed the Site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated groundwater, soil, and surface water resulting from former manufacturing operations. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and El Paso Natural Gas Company (now owned by Kinder Morgan), the Site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), have investigated Site conditions and taken steps to clean up the Site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. Local residences and businesses are connected to the public water supply. By conducting cleanup activities, monitoring groundwater and surface water, and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, NCDENR, and Kinder Morgan continue to protect people and the environment from Site contamination.
