The 465-acre National Starch and Chemical site is a manufacturing facility for textile finishing and custom speciality chemicals in Rowan County, North Carolina. A portion of the site is heavily wooded, and surrounding land use is mixed industrial and residential. From 1971 to 1978, approximately 350,000 gallons of reaction vessel washwater containing salt brines, sulfuric acid solutions, and solvents were disposed of onsite in unlined trenches. A 1988 Record of Decision (ROD) addressed Operable Unit 1 (OU1), which called for onsite ground water pumping and treatment, and further investigation of soil contamination in the trench area, continued surface water and sediment monitoring and a supplemental remedial investigation (RI). The ROD addresses OU2, and identifies no further action as the remedy for the trench area soil based on the supplemental RI. A subsequent ROD will address OU3.
