Site Description

Marzone Inc./Chevron Chemical Company operated two pesticide formulation and storage facilities from 1950 until 1983 in Tifton, GA. The facilities, owned by several different companies, handled various types of pesticides and/or fertilizers. The cleanup project, called OU2, is approximately 10 to 15 acres, is addressing contaminated soils and a wetland area.

Current Site Status and Cleanup Actions to Date

  • In 1993 and 1994, EPA removed more than 6,000 tons of contaminated soil and debris from Marzone OU2 site, and shipped it to a permitted landfill.
  • In 1998, EPA completed the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS).
  • In 1999, EPA decided to excavate (PDF) (530 K, 2 pp) and dispose of contaminated soils and sediments offsite.
  • In 1999, EPA began the Remedial Design (RD) of OU2, which included soil, sediment and groundwater sampling. The design was completed in 2001.
  • EPA has been anticipating remedial action at the site since FY-2002; however, long term cleanup of the site has not occurred yet due to on-going negotiations with Potentially Responsible Parties (PRPs).

Current Funding Status

  • EPA is negotiating with the PRPs on possible future costs for cleaning up the site. Substantial progress has been made towards settlement, which may result in the collection of enough money to fund the soil and sediment cleanup in Fiscal Year 2005. This work was not funded by EPA in Fiscal Year 2004.
