Superfund Site Profile
The 140-acre Macalloy Corporation site is located in Charleston, South Carolina. It includes the area where a ferrochromium alloy smelting plant operated from 1941 to 1998. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2000 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), and the Macalloy Potentially Responsible Party Group, the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs), 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. By monitoring groundwater, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, SCDHEC and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
