EPA Superfund Program: ALSCO ANACONDA, GNADENHUTTEN, OH

Superfund Site Profile

The 4.8-acre Alsco Anaconda site is located near the Tuscarawas River in Gnadenhutten, Ohio. From 1965 to 1978, Alsco used the site for the disposal of wastewater and wastewater treatment sludges from aluminum product manufacturing. Alsco discharged the wastewater to the river; sludge was disposed of into two unlined lagoons and a sludge pit. Overflow from the lagoons spilled into a low-lying wooded area near the river. Facility operations contaminated soil, sludge and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2001.
