EPA Superfund Program: SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON CO. (VISALIA POLEYARD), VISALIA, CA

Superfund Site Profile

The 20-acre Southern California Edison Co. (Visalia Poleyard) site in Visalia, California, was a utility pole treatment yard from the 1920s to 1980. Leaking tanks and stored treated poles contaminated groundwater and soil with chemicals, including creosote and pentachlorophenol (PCP). Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2009.
