EPA to Present Update on Status of Southside Chattanooga Lead Site

In 2013, EPA removed soil contaminated with lead from 84 properties located on Read Avenue, Mitchell Avenue, Underwood Street (formerly Carr Street) and intersecting streets. EPA, in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation initiated a soil study in 2016 to determine whether lead-contaminated foundry-related waste materials were isolated in the area of previous soil removals or whether additional areas may be impacted. As a result, more than 200 properties located in areas where lead-contaminated foundry related waste was suspected of being used were sampled. EPA proposed to add the site to the NPL on January 18, 2008 and will accept public comments on the proposal until March 19, 2018.
