Background

The NL Industries/Taracorp/Golden Auto site is located in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. The site includes two neighboring properties. Metal refining, fabricating and associated activities took place at the site until 1903. A secondary lead smelting facility operated on site from 1903 to 1981. Waste disposal operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1998. Operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
