Stage of Clean-up: Construction Completed
Conditions at proposal (June 24, 1988): The Dixie OIL Processors, Inc. (DOP) Site covers 27 acres along opposite sides of Choate Road in Harris County near Friendswood, south of Houston, Texas. Throughout its history, the site has had several owner/operators. In 1978, DOP, the most recent operator, began converting liquid organic wastes (for example, phenolic TARS and GLYCOL cutter stock) generated by various refining, chemical, and petrochemical facilities to CREOSOTE, fuel OIL extenders, and other PETROLEUM products. In 1984, DOP removed over 6,000 cubic yards of soils contaminated with phenolic TARS and transported the material to a regulated hazardous waste facility. Additional wastes and contaminated soils remain on-site. More...
