Kingsbury Metal Finishing

The soil was contaminated with metals at this former electroplating facility in Guadalupe County. Cleanup has been completed and the site has been deleted from the state Superfund registry. No further Superfund environmental response actions are required.

Site Summary

The former Kingsbury Metal Finishing facility at 1720 FM 1104 covers approximately 15 acres on the west side of FM 1104, just north of Turner Lane, approximately 0.75 miles southeast of Kingsbury. The facility plated zinc and chromium to metal parts from 1986 to 1997.

Beginning Cleanup and Superfund Registry

In July-September of 2000, the TCEQ conducted a removal action to dispose of free liquids, sludge, soils, plating tanks and vats, and unused hazardous products that were abandoned at the facility. The TCEQ proposed the site to the state Superfund registry in 2001.

Remedial Action

The TCEQ conducted a remedial investigation from 2001-2002. In 2003, the TCEQ removed and disposed of the contaminated soils and returned the site to residential land use (Title 30, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 350).

Once the site no longer posed a threat to public health and safety or the environment, the TCEQ proposed deleting the site from the state Superfund registry. It was deleted in 2004.

Current Status

Cleanup is complete. No additional state Superfund environmental response actions are needed.
