The NL Industries/Taracorp Lead Smelting site is an inactive secondary lead smelting facility in a heavily industrialized section of Granite City, Madison County, Illinois. Prior to 1903, the site was used for metal refining, fabricating, and other associated activities. From 1903 to 1983, the site was used for secondary lead smelting activities. These operations generated an onsite pile of blast furnace slag and battery casing debris waste. From 1981 to 1983, St. Louis Lead Recyclers, Inc. (SLLR) used equipment on an adjacent property to recycle lead-bearing materials from the Taracorp waste pile for use in the furnaces at Taracorp. Hard rubber was the end waste product of the recycling process. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the Taracorp pile, the SLLR piles, and residential soil, alleys, and driveways that are contaminated by airborne lead and/or hard rubber battery casing material. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil and debris is lead.
