Terry Creek Superfund Site

About the Site

From 1948 to 1980, the Hercules Brunswick pesticide production facility discharged their wastewater into Dupree Creek, which flows into Terry Creek. The wastewater contained toxaphene, a pesticide, which is still present in the outfall ditch sediments, Terry and Dupree Creek sediments, and dredge disposal areas. The site consists of three disposal areas and the Hercules Outfall Ditch.
