The National Starch and Chemical Corporation (NSCC) site is located in Rowan County, North Carolina, approximately five miles south of the city of Salisbury. The site consists of 500 acres and is occupied by the NCSS-owned Cedar Springs Road Plant which currently manufactures textile finishing and custom specialty chemicals. From 1971 to 1978, NSCC disposed of approximately 350,000 gallons of reaction vessel wash waters classified as D002 waste (corrosive waste with pH less than or equal to 2.0) in trenches constructed in a 5-acre tract of land located behind the plant. The waste consisted predominantly of salt brines, sulfuric acid solutions, sulfonating fats and oils, and solvents. The selected remedial action for the site includes: installation of a ground water interception and extraction system downgradient of the source area(s) with pretreatment prior to discharge.
