The United Creosoting site, Montgomery County, Texas, operated from 1946 to 1972, treating wood with creosote and pentachlorophenol (PCP). During the summer of 1980, Montgomery County obtained soils from the United Creosoting site to be used in improving local roads in a nearby subdivision. Samples indicated that soils were contaminated with PCP, chlorinated dioxins (no tetrachlorinated dioxins), and dibenzofurans. EPA ordered Clark Distributing to undertake an Immediate Response Action within the area of the former waste ponds. Remedial actions were recommended and are included in the report.
