In 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collected groundwater-level altitude data and water-quality samples from monitoring wells at the Petro-Chemical Systems, Inc. (Turtle Bayou) Superfund Site in Liberty County, Texas to evaluate the status of groundwater contamination at this previously remediated site. The dataset includes groundwater-level altitudes and field properties measured at 11 monitoring wells along with data from environmental and quality assurance/quality control water quality samples collected at each well. Water-quality samples were analyzed for a suite of volatile and semivolatile organic compounds.

The Triangle Chemical Company Superfund site, in Orange County, Texas, was a chemical mixing and blending facility in the 1970s. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), poor waste management practices resulted in soil and groundwater contamination and fish-kills in Coon Bayou (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2023). The Five-Year Review of the Triangle Superfund Site indicated groundwater in the upper water-bearing zone might be migrating off-site toward the southwest (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2016). There are concerns regarding potential risks to human health from contaminated soil vapor in existing or future structures in the area. To evaluate the status of volatile organic compound...

These are Brownfields and Superfund Sites pulled out of the EPA Facility Registry System (FRS) for the state of Utah. To improve public health and the environment, the EPA collects information about facilities or sites subject to environmental regulation. This page provides state comma separated value (CSV) files containing key information of all facilities and sites within the Facility Registry System (FRS). Each state zip file contains a single CSV file of key facility-level information including facility name and address, geospatial information, EPA and State programs the facility is associated with, and facility industry classifications (SIC and NAICS codes and descriptions). Complete documentation of the CSV...

In September 2022, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collected groundwater-level elevation data and water-quality samples from monitoring wells at the Many Diversified Interests, Inc. Superfund Site in Houston, Texas to evaluate the status of groundwater contamination at this previously remediated site. The dataset includes groundwater-level elevations and field properties measured at 12 monitoring wells along with data from environmental and quality assurance and quality control water-quality samples collected at each well. Water-quality samples were analyzed for arsenic, manganese, molybdenum, benzo(a)pyrene, and petroleum hydrocarbons.
This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release contains tree-core, groundwater, and soil data collected at the Vienna Wells Superfund site in Vienna, Missouri by the U.S. Geological Survey between 2011 and 2016. Concentrations of tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and 1,1,2-Trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane (CFC-113) are reported for each location or sample in each medium. Tree-core sampling was conducted over seven days during six major phases occurring during September 2011, May 2013, August 2013, July 2014, May 2015, and October 2015. A total of 470 tree-core samples were collected and analyzed using established methods. A total of 56 groundwater samples were collected from monitoring wells on...

The Geneva Industries/Fuhrmann Energy Superfund Site in southeastern Houston, Texas was historically used as a site for petroleum exploration and petrochemical production and is currently (2023) inactive. Previous remedies to clean up the contaminated site included: excavation and off-site disposal of polychlorinated biphenyl-contaminated soils, capping of residual water on-site with a perimeter slurry wall, the recovery and treatment of trichloroethylene-contaminated groundwater, and institutional controls (Environmental Protection Agency, 2019). A conceptual site model (CSM) does not yet exist and is needed to (1) understand how site conditions have changed since earlier investigations; (2) reevaluate site contaminants...

In 2023, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collected groundwater-level altitude and water-quality data from monitoring wells at the Petro-Chemical Systems, Inc. (Turtle Bayou) Superfund Site in Liberty County, Texas. The data were collected to obtain information that could be used to provide an update on the status of groundwater contamination at the site. This data release documents the groundwater-level altitudes, field properties, and water-quality data obtained in 2023 from six of the 11 monitoring wells where similar data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in August and September 2020 (Braun and Becher 2022). The environmental and quality-control...
