Superfund Site Profile
The 20-acre Davis Park Road TCE site is located in Gastonia, North Carolina. The site includes a residential and commercial area affected by contaminated groundwater. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1999 because of contaminated groundwater. EPA and the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Environment (NCDENR) have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. In 2000, EPA connected most residences overlying affected groundwater to the public water system or installed filter systems. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working on or near the site. By monitoring groundwater contamination and conducting required Five-Year Reviews, EPA and NCDENR continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
