Superfund Site: LEE CHEMICAL
LIBERTY, MO

Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

The Lee Chemical Site is located near Liberty, Missouri. The one-acre site was used as a chemical packaging and distribution facility. The company operating at the site also arranged for the disposal of chemicals from various commercial companies which resulted in the on-site stockpiling of numerous 55-gallon drums. Operations at the site took place from 1966 to 1974 until Lee Chemical abandoned the facility. City of Liberty officials found several hundred drums of chemicals on the site, most of which were removed by the city in 1977. The City of Liberty, which owns the property, has removed the building and visible contamination from the site.
