Camtraco Enterprises, Inc.
The Camtraco Enterprises, Inc. Proposed State Superfund site is located at 18823 Amoco Drive in the southern part of Pearland, Brazoria County, Texas. The site consists of approximately 3.5 acres of vacant land and is bounded on all sides by a security fence. Residential properties are located to the south, west, and north of the site. An active railroad and industrial property is located along the eastern border of the site.
The site was formerly used as a fuel storage and fuel blending/distillation facility. In 1988 and 1989, the TCEQ conducted numerous investigations that identified evidence of on-site spills, air violations, and buried drums. The site has been inactive since 1992.
Superfund Registry and Investigation
In 2005, the TCEQ performed a removal action at the site and sampled private water wells within a half mile of the site. The site was Proposed for Listing as a State Superfund Site on February 6, 2009. The TCEQ began a Remedial Investigation of the site in 2009. Soil, sediment, and groundwater samples were collected from monitoring wells, both on and off-site. The soil sample results showed metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) above the commercial/industrial Protective Concentration Levels (PCLs). The groundwater sample results showed VOCs above the PCLs in the uppermost groundwater-bearing unit. Both the soil and groundwater contamination were limited to on-site locations. In August 2016, the TCEQ completed the Feasibility Study, which evaluated remedial action alternatives for the site.
In November 2016, the TCEQ prepared a Proposed Remedial Action Document (PRAD), which describes the proposed remedial action alternative (remedy).
A public meeting concerning the site will be held at Pearland Junior High South on January 12, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to obtain additional information regarding the facility and identification of additional Potentially Responsible Parties as well as public input concerning the proposed remedy for the site.
