Notice of Intent to Perform Removal Action at the Cass County Treating Company State Superfund Site, Linden, Cass County, Texas

The executive director of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) hereby issues public notice of intent to perform a removal action, as provided by Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC), §361.133, for the Cass County Treating Company state Superfund site (the site). The site is comprised of approximately 17 acres located at 304 Hall Road in Linden, Cass County, Texas. The site also includes any areas where hazardous substances have come to be located as a result, either directly or indirectly, of releases of hazardous substances from the site.

Wood treating operations were conducted at the site from the 1960(s to 2004. The contaminants of concern at the site include cadmium, chromium, creosote constituents, dieldrin, endrin, lead, mercury, napthalene, and pentachlorophenol (PCP). One or more of these contaminants have been found in soil, sediments, and groundwater at the site.

The site is proposed for listing under THSC, Chapter 361, Subchapter F. The immediate action is appropriate to remove a source of contamination to surface water and groundwater and to protect human health and the environment. A removal can be completed without extensive investigation and planning and will achieve a significant cost reduction for the site. The remedial objectives of the site can be furthered through a technically uncomplicated removal action. The removal action will consist of the removal and disposal of chemical storage tanks and their contents, waste drums and their contents, sumps, contaminated concrete, and dilapidated structures that would impede future investigations and present physical hazards to site workers.

A portion of the records for this site is available for review during regular business hours at the Atlanta Public Library, 101 West Hiram, Atlanta, Texas 75551 (telephone: (903) 796-2112). Copies of the complete public record file may be obtained during regular business hours at the commission's Records Management Center, Building E, First Floor, Records Customer Service, MC 199, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Austin, Texas 78753, (800) 633-9363 or (512) 239-2920. Photocopying of file information is subject to payment of a fee. Parking for persons with disabilities is available on the east side of Building D, convenient to access ramps that are between Buildings D and E.
