Camtraco Enterprises, Inc.

This former fuel storage, blending, and distillation facility in Pearland, Brazoria County is in the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study phase of the State Superfund Program.

Site Summary

The Camtraco Enterprises, Inc. proposed state Superfund site is located at 18823 Amoco Drive, Pearland, Brazoria County, Texas. The site consists of approximately 3.5 acres of vacant land that is bordered by residential properties to the south, west, and north, and a railroad right-of-way and industrial property to the east. The site is bounded on all sides by a seven-foot security fence.

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

From 2005 to 2006, the TCEQ performed a removal action at the site and sampled private water wells within a half mile of the site. The TCEQ proposed the site to the state Superfund registry on February 6, 2009.

The TCEQ began a remedial investigation (RI) in 2009 to determine the nature and extent of contamination at the site. The RI determined that several volatile organic compounds (VOCs), p-chloroaniline, and metals have contaminated on-site surface soil and subsurface soil at levels that exceeded applicable PCLs. Additionally, a plume of groundwater contamination (primarily VOCs and arsenic) occurs in the shallow groundwater bearing unit. Soil located off-site does not contain COCs above applicable PCLs and does not require further action. The deep groundwater bearing unit on-site and off-site does not contain COCs above applicable PCLs and does not require further action. In August 2016, the TCEQ completed the feasibility study, which evaluated remedial action alternatives for the site.

Current Status

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 was held on January 12, 2017 at Pearland Junior High School, located at 4719 Bailey Road, Pearland, Texas.  The purpose of the meeting was to obtain additional information regarding the facility and the identification of additional potentially responsible parties and to receive public input concerning the proposed remedy for the site.
