The Flowood site consists of 225 acres of mostly wetlands and lowlands, is located in the Town of Flowood, Rankin County, Mississippi on the east side of the Pearl River. The site includes wastewater discharge areas and downstream areas adjacent to two industrial manufacturing facilities. Two manufacturing facilities have been owned and operated by a series of companies at the Flowood site since the 1950s. The northernmost facility manufactured corrugated boxes, and the southernmost facility produced ceramic tiles through the 1970s and stoneware cooking pots from the mid-1970s to the present. A routine industrial wastewater inspection conducted by the Mississippi Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) in the fall of 1982 revealed the unpermitted discharge of hazardous substances to the onsite canal. Subsequent sampling detected lead contamination in water and sediments from the canal. The MDNR began an emergency treatment and removal process to address the contaminated wastewater, but discontinued the process when higher levels of lead were found in the canal adjacent to one of the manufacturing sites. In 1983, EPA investigations revealed high lead levels in onsite sludges, sediments, and surface soil. The primary contaminant affecting the soil and sediments is lead. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
