Bailey Metal Processors, Inc.

This former scrap copper and lead reclamation facility in Brady, McCulloch County is being addressed under the State Superfund Program.

Site Summary

The Bailey Metal Processors Inc. (Bailey Metal) site covers five acres approximately one mile northwest of Brady on US Highway 87. The facility is bounded on the east by US Highway 87 and a vacant property; on the south by railroad tracks; and on the north by the Brady ISD school-bus barn.

As early as 1995, the facility reclaimed copper and lead from scrap wire by mechanically removing or burning off the paper, plastic, and lead coatings. Bailey Metal closed in 1999 after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Several waste piles remained at the facility after it ceased operation.

Superfund Registry and Investigation

In April 2005, the TCEQ proposed the site to the state Superfund registry. In May 2006, TCEQ began the remedial investigation.

Current Status

The site is in the remedial investigation phase to determine the nature and extent of contamination through soil and groundwater sampling.
