Optimization Review: Jones Road Superfund Site, Harris County, Texas

The Jones Road Ground Water Plume Superfund Site is located in western Harris County, Texas, just outside of the city limits of Houston, Texas, in EPA Region 6. The site is the location of the former Bell Dry Cleaners. The dry cleaning facility operated between 1988 and 2002 in a small shopping center in an area of mixed commercial and residential land use. Releases of chlorinated volatile organic compounds (cVOC) from improper disposal of dry cleaning solvents migrated vertically downward through the unsaturated zone to perched water and to lower aquifers, where multiple private water supply wells were and are presently located.
