Where: Southwestern portion of SSC
What: Paint shop and degreasing operations, battery storage/acid neutralization, and waste oil storage

Status: Clean up remedy included sediment removal and active groundwater pump and treat system, which was implemented in February 2003. Monitoring includes sampling and analyzing water from the pump and treat unit and from selected wells according to a plan approved by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). As a result of the 5-year Review by the MDEQ in November 2007, 5 years was added to the active remediation phase through 2013 followed by post remediation (natural attenuation) in 2014 through 2038 to continue the degradation process for the remaining groundwater contaminates. The analytical data is presented to the MDEQ on an annual basis.
