EPA Superfund Program: TRIANGLE CHEMICAL CO., BRIDGE CITY, TX

Superfund Site Profile

The Triangle Chemical Company site is located in Bridge City in Orange County, Texas. A chemical mixing and blending facility operated at the site from the early 1970s until 1981. Chemicals handled during operations included industrial cleaning compounds, automotive brake fluid, windshield washer solvent, hand cleaners and pesticides. Poor waste management practices resulted in soil and groundwater contamination and fishkills in Coon Bayou. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities and groundwater monitoring are ongoing. EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in April 1997.
