The 54 acre Bayou Bonfouca Superfund Site, located at the western edge of Slidell, Louisiana, is impacted by creosote contamination from a wood-treating plant that operated between 1872 and1970. Surface water bordering the site on the downgradient sides also was affected by creosote. Source removal operations costing approximately $140 million began in November 1993 and were completed in July 1995.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
