Marzone Superfund Site

Project Description

CH2M HILL conducted engineering, procurement, contracting, scientific and analytical support, community relations, and regulatory agency negotiations for Chevron. Through integrated and innovative efforts we remediated 20,000 tons of contaminated soils and impacted groundwater 3 years ahead of schedule.

The latest in a long series of owners and operators of this former pesticide formulating plant in Georgia, Chevron Chemical Company inherited a U.S. EPA National Priorities List property plagued by pesticide-contaminated soil and groundwater, the result of decades of inadequate disposal practices. The EPA designated the rural agricultural town an environmental justice community, which complicated the execution of Chevron’s proposed remedial activities. As a result, the threat of toxic torts against Chevron and civil rights litigation against EPA over the remedies proposed in the Record of Decision (ROD) constantly influenced project implementation.
