- The Former Adamson Development Corporation of America Facility manufactured storage tanks (aboveground and below ground). In February 1994, Adamson filed for bankruptcy and subsequently ceased manufacturing operations at the site. The Development Corporation of America, who acquired the property as part of a sale/leaseback in February 1978, conducted investigation and remediation activities as a result of insufficient funds being available from Adamson bankruptcy proceedings to restore the site to compliance. A total of approximately 2,500 empty one-gallon and five-gallon paint containers as well as approximately 75 fifty-five gallon drums were excavated and removed from the site. Additionally forty, one cubic yard waste boxes were disposed of as hazardous waste. Clean Closure of soils and groundwater was verified by VDEQ in September 2001 and April 2004, respectively.
- A Final RCRA Site Visit Report was issued on January 30, 2009 for the Facility. A Statement of Basis (SOB) was noticed on July 8, 2009. The EPA issued its Final Decision regarding the Facility on August 12, 2009 stating that Corrective Action was Complete without Controls.
- The Former Adamson Development Corporation of America Facility was comprised of a single structure located on an 18-acre site. The site is located in a rural residential portion of Mecklenburg County.
