Superfund Site Profile
The 3.5-acre National Electric Coil Co./Cooper Industries site is located in Dayhoit, Kentucky. It includes the area where National Electric Coil Company operated a coal mining machinery repair facility from 1951 to 1987. From 1987 to 2010, another company operated a similar facility at the site. In 2010, automobile storage operations began at the site. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1992 because of contaminated air, soil and groundwater resulting from coal mining machinery repair operations.
EPA, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP) and the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs) 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. Since 1989, a water line has connected residences and businesses nearby to the public water supply. By treating and monitoring groundwater and conducting required Five-Year Reviews, EPA, KDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
