    Current Site Status
    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is overseeing the cleanup of the Avtex Fibers site. FMC Corp., a party responsible for some of the contamination at the site, has been closing zinc sludge and fly ash disposal areas since May 2001. The cleanup consolidates wastes and secures those wastes with a protective material where needed, a thick soil cover and vegetation (cap). The cleanup integrates the Conservancy Park Master Plan developed for the site. By regrading significant portions of the site, revegetating cleanup areas, and providing the ground work for future trails and roads, the baseline for the conservancy park will be provided.

    An approach to manage the remaining 10,500 cubic yards of debris generated from the EPA’s building demolition work is under review by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and the EPA. Since October 1999, FMC has managed approximately 104,800 cubic yards of waste and debris. These materials were either cleaned for potential reuse on-site or transported off-site for recycling or disposal.

    EPA signed an Action Memorandum on December 21, 2001 which approves decontamination of the remaining buildings and excavation of the remaining sewers. The agency is overseeing the cleanup of the remaining buildings, substructures and sewers which began in January 2002. Not only will this effort manage the remaining environmental threats, it will also facilitate the demolition and reduce costs associated with managing that debris.

    A Feasibility Study, which provides a detailed evaluation of cleanup options, which addresses viscose basins 1-8, a landfill and wastewater treatment plant, is in progress. EPA expects to propose a cleanup plan which addresses these areas this summer.

    EPA and FMC are evaluating groundwater data collected and developing strategies to address groundwater contamination associated with these basins. Methods to treat viscose leachate are under review as the Feasibility Study for groundwater and viscose basins 9-11 continues.


    Site Description
    The Avtex Fibers site, located in Warren County, Virginia is a 440-acres plant that manufactured rayon and other synthetics from 1940 until 1989. Tons of rayon manufacturing wastes and by-products, zinc hydroxide sludge, and fly ash and boiler room solids were disposed on site in 23 impoundments and fill areas encompassing 220 acres. Waste disposal practices at the plant contaminated the groundwater under the site and in residential wells across the river from the site with carbon disulfide, phenol, sodium, and heavy metals including lead, arsenic, and cadmium. In 1989, the Virginia State Water Control Board linked polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contamination in the Shenandoah River to the Avtex Fibers plant. Subsequently, Virginia revoked the plant's permit that allowed treated waste water to be discharged to the river. Shutdown of the Avtex Fibers plant followed this action. Approximately 1,300 people live within a 3-mile radius of the site and depend on ground water as a drinking water supply. A significant amount of waste has been disposed of in impoundments situated within the 100-year flood plain of the Shenandoah River.

    Site Responsibility
    This site is being addressed through a combination of Federal, State, and potentially responsible parties' actions.
    NPL Listing History
    This site was proposed to the National Priorities List of the most serious uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous waste site requiring long term remedial action on may October 15, 1984. The site was formally added to the list June 10, 1986, making it eligible for federal cleanup
