The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4 has signed an Action Memorandum (AM) for a removal action at the Burlington Industries Cheraw Site (the Site) located in Cheraw, Chesterfield County, South Carolina. An AM serves as the primary decision document that determines the need for a removal action, authorizes the removal action, identifies the action and cleanup levels and explains the reason for the removal response. This initial action will fund the cleanup of six residential properties contaminated with Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs). The presence of PCBs was discovered by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and has been attributed to wastewater operations at the former Burlington Industries, Inc. facility in Cheraw.You may need Adobe Reader to view files on this page.
