  • Site Description
    Stage of Clean-up: Construction Completed

    Conditions at proposal (January 22, 1987): The Charles Macon Lagoon and Drum Storage Site covers 16 acres on State Road 1103 in Richmond County, approximately 1.5 miles southwest of Cordova, North Carolina. The owner operated a waste OIL reclamation facility which also accepted other wastes, including spent solvents, acids, and bases. The facility was leased to another operator in May 1981. Operations ceased in October 1981 when the owner died. During a site inspection in 1980, the North Carolina Solid and Hazardous Waste Management Branch (SHWMB) found ll lagoons containing waste OIL and sludge and 2,173 55-gallon drums containing various chemical wastes. Eight of the lagoons were unlined and overflowing. The State's analyses of the OIL and sludge wastes in the lagoons found LEAD, CHROMIUM, and BARIUM at concentrations considered hazardous under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.  More...
