EPA Superfund Program: MOWBRAY ENGINEERING CO., GREENVILLE, AL

Superfund Site Profile

The 2.7-acre Mowbray Engineering Co. site is located in Greenville, Alabama. It includes an area where Mowbray Engineering Company discharged used transformer oil from its facility, which repaired and reconditioned electrical transformers. EPA placed the site on Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated soil resulting from waste handling practices. EPA, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) and Alabama Power Company, the site’s primary potentially responsible party (PRP), have investigated conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. Contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. By conducting operation and maintenance activities, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, ADEM and the site’s primary PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
