Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site

About the Site

The Brunswick Wood Preserving Site housed wood treatment and preserving operations from 1958 to 1991. Regular use of chemicals such as creosote, pentachlorophenol, and copper chromium arsenate contaminated the site’s groundwater and soil and requires long-term cleanup. Other chemicals of concern include dense non-aqueous phase liquids and sediment chemicals such as naphthalene, benzene, and semi-volatile organic compounds. The cleanup is managed in two parts, 1) the Upland, or site-wide soils, sediments, and groundwater and 2) the ecological risks in Burnett Creek and other surface waters.
