Superfund Site Profile
The Smalley-Piper site is located in Collierville, Tennessee. This former manufacturing site had at least two different business operations including the production of battery casings and farm equipment. The site was in use from the 1960s to the about 2007. EPA placed the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 2005 because of contaminated groundwater, surface water and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) 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. The soil cleanup was completed in 2012. The groundwater treatment system was constructed during 2015 and should be in operation by end of the 2015. These cleanup actions, managed by EPA and TDEC, continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
