Background

The 12-acre Hart Creosoting Company site is located in Jasper in Jasper County, Texas. A former wood treatment facility operated at the site. Historical wood-treating operations used coal tar creosote dissolved in diesel to treat railroad ties and utility poles. The facility managed creosote waste from treatment operations in unlined surface ponds. Waste disposal activities contaminated soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities and monitoring are ongoing.
