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