Houston Lead operated this 15-acre site at 375 Holmes Road in Houston, Harris County. The company performed secondary smelting and refining of nonferrous metals, manufactured soft pig and ingot lead, and recovered lead from lead-acid batteries. Soils at the site were impacted by lead, cadmium and arsenic.
Superfund Registry and Voluntary Cleanup
The TCEQ proposed the site to the state Superfund registry in 1987. Potentially Responsible Parties submitted an application to investigate and cleanup the site under the TCEQ Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) Program. The site was accepted into the TCEQ VCP in 1996 and deleted from the registry in 1998.
A VCP Conditional Certificate of Completion was issued on February 2, 2010. No further Superfund environmental response actions are required.
