Hall Street

This former waste disposal site in Dickinson, Galveston County is in the feasibility study phase of the state Superfund program.

Site Summary

The Hall Street site is located in a rural neighborhood north of the Dickinson city limits, and north of the intersection of 20th Street East (formerly Hall Street) with California Street. In the early 1960s, the site was used for the unpermitted disposal of wastes characteristic to chemical manufacturers. Waste materials were disposed of in shallow pits or on the ground. Drums containing wastes were buried in shallow ditches and later covered with soil.

Superfund Registry and Investigation

In 1986, the TCEQ proposed the site to the Superfund registry and it was officially listed on January 16, 1987. The remedial investigation (RI) began in November 1992 and was completed in August 2015.

In 2009, as part of the RI, the TCEQ oversaw cleanup operations involving the excavation of former waste pits containing soil, liquid contaminants, and buried drums. Approximately 9,187 tons of excavated waste were transported and disposed of to an approved landfill. Backfilling with clean soil was completed to fill in the excavations.

Current Status

The site is currently in the feasibility study phase. The TCEQ continues to sample the soil and groundwater to further characterize the site and develop and analyze potential remedial actions.
