  • Site Description
    Stage of Clean-up: Study Underway

    The Alabama Plating Company, Inc., facility is comprised of approximately 6 acres, including 4.33 acres north, and 1.35 acres south of Highway 60, in Vincent, Shelby County, Alabama. The site is a former CADMIUM, COPPER, and ZINC electroplating and hot-dip galvanizing facility that operated from 1956 to 1986. The site is being proposed to the NPL based on evidence that CYANIDE and metals, including ARSENIC, CADMIUM, CHROMIUM, COPPER, LEAD, NICKEL, and ZINC, have impacted a recreational fishery and the ground water underlying the facility and have the potential to migrate to a major drinking water source.
