Angus Road Groundwater Plume

This site consists of a groundwater plume in Odessa, Ector County and is being addressed under the State Superfund Program.

Site Background

The Angus Road Groundwater Plume site (the site) is located beneath the 4300 block of Angus Road in Odessa, Ector County. This site is a groundwater plume of unknown source. The plume underlies an area approximately bounded by West 47th Street on the north, Johnson Street on the west, Kermit Highway on the south, and Cessna Avenue and Brahma Road on the east. The area overlying the site consists of mixed commercial and residential properties, including a mobile home park. A variety of businesses operate in the area, including light industrial fabrication, warehouses, storage facilities, and oil and gas production wells. The area within a half-mile radius to the south of the site consists of industrial and commercial businesses. The area to the west consists of ranch land with oil and gas production. To the east and southeast are residences with water wells, warehouses, storage facilities, welding shops, engine repair shops, supply stores, and other businesses. The area to the north is mostly residential. The TCEQ has collected groundwater samples from private and public water system wells as part of an investigation of the groundwater. These groundwater samples indicate the presence of three hazardous substances — 1,2-dichloroethane, 1,2,3-trichloropropane, and manganese — above the health-based levels established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The investigation so far has not identified any potential sources for the contamination.
