EPA Superfund Program: LYMAN DYEING AND FINISHING, LYMAN, SC

Superfund Site Profile

The 14-acre site is located on a 12-acre peninsula in the southern portion of Lyman, Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The site includes a 3.9-acre landfill area and a 4.5-acre wetland area. An industrial facility borders the site to the north. The Middle Tyger River borders the site to the south, east and west. Residential properties are located north and west of the site. An undeveloped area and James F. Byrnes High School are located south of the site. The Startex-Jackson-Wellford-Duncan Water District operates a municipal water treatment plant east of the site.

From 1924 to 1965, Lyman Dyeing and Finishing operated a landfill at the site where the company disposed of solid wastes from its mill operations. The landfill included three disposal areas. EPA did not list the site on the NPL but considers it an NPL-caliber site and is addressing it through the Superfund Alternative Approach.

The site is not in use. The industrial facility to the north, fencing and the Middle Tyger River limit access to the site. The site can support commercial and industrial uses.
