Remediation System Evaluation, Streamlined Remediation System Evaluation (RSE-Lite), Cape Fear Wood Preserving Site

The Cape Fear Wood Preserving Site is located in Cumberland County, North Carolina, on the western side of Fayetteville near Highway 401. The site consists of about nine acres of a 41-acre tract of land that is adjacent to other industrial/commercial establishments, as well as private residences. The facility operations involved wood treatment processes from 1953 to 1983, which caused contamination in site soil, sediment, and ground water. The site investigation was conducted by EPA in October 1984.
