Superfund Site Profile
The North Belmont PCE site is located in Belmont, North Carolina. It includes an area where a dry cleaning business operated from 1960 to 1975. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1999 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from waste handling practices at the site.
EPA and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) 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. A water line connects nearby residences and businesses to the public water supply. By treating groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and NCDENR continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
