OFF HWY 5 W
The site, located near Aberdeen in Moore County, North Carolina, consists of five separate areas known as the Farm Chemicals Area, the Twin Sites Area, the Fairway Six Area, the McIver Dump Area and the Route 211 Area. The site includes an area where a pesticide formulation plant operated (the Farm Chemicals Area) and four areas where operations disposed of wastes from the formulation process. In 1989, EPA listed the site on the NPL. The Geigy Chemical Corporation (Aberdeen Plant) and the Aberdeen Contaminated Ground Water Superfund sites are located approximately 2.5 miles southeast of the site. The 4-acre Farm Chemicals Area is located on the south side of N.C. State Highway 5 (Pinehurst Road), about 0.5 miles west of the roadâ€™s intersection with U.S. Highway 1. The Area borders the western edge of Aberdeen. Commercial and light industrial properties border the Area to the south and west. Residential land uses border the Area to the east; the nearest residence is approximately 200 feet away. Page's Lake is approximately 500 feet downhill from the Area. People use the lake for fishing and general recreation. From 1930 until 1987, a pesticide formulation plant operated at the Area. Parties demolished the facility in 1997. In 2004, part of the Area was redeveloped as a commercial mini-storage warehouse facility. An industrial and construction supply store and a coffee roaster also operate at the Area.
