[Back to Top]

The Site was purchased by Miller Industries, Inc. (Miller) in 1939. Miller conducted textile manufacturing operations at the Site until 1992, at which time the mill ceased operations. The mill is currently used by Miller for storage.

EPA initiated a preliminary assessment/site investigation (PA/SI) on August 28, 2003. Sampling activities conducted by EPA on September 18, 2003 documented the presence of elevated lead concentrations in surface soils at the Site. On May 20, 2005, EPA conducted additional soil sampling to further delineate the extent of contamination. The PA/SI was concluded with the recommendation that a time-critical removal action be conducted to address the contamination.
