Houston Lead

This former smelting and lead-acid battery recycling facility in Harris County was accepted into the TCEQ Voluntary Cleanup Program. No further Superfund environmental response actions are required.

Site Summary

Houston Lead operated an approximately 11.64 acre site at 300 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.

Current Status

No further Superfund environmental response actions are required.
