|The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has begun the process of obtaining access agreements from approximately 10 property owners whose property is located near the former Virginia Carolina Chemical (VCC) fertilizer manufacturing site in Social Circle, Walton County, Georgia. The agreement will allow EPA and other authorized representatives to have access to conduct sampling and, if required, cleanup activities. Sampling is scheduled to begin June 21, 2004. EPA's activities at the site may include, but are not limited to, the following:
The former VCC site is located between E. Hightower Road and the Georgia Railroad tracks, east of the city center. The facility operated a fertilizer facility in the Social Circle area until approximately 1930. ExxonMobil is the corporate successor to Virginia-Carolina.
