|The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public meeting regarding the Sigmon's Septic Tank site in Statesville, Iredell County, North Carolina on Thursday, August 29, 2002.
The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Celeste Henkel School, 1503 Old Mountain Road in Statesville. EPA officials will be available to provide information on the Superfund process, an overview of field activities and provide a schedule of all upcoming events.
Sigmon's Septic Tank Site is located at 1268 Eufola Road, approximately five miles southwest of Statesville. The property is approximately 15-acres and is bordered by Eufola Road to the north, Lauren Drive to the south, and private landowners to the east and west. Sigmon's Septic Tank Services, a subsidiary of AAA Enterprises, has been owned and operated by the Sigmon family since 1948. The business pumped septic tank wastes and heavy sludges from residential, commercial, and industrial customers; installed and repaired septic tanks; and provided a variety of industrial waste removal services. The business ceased operations in September 1995 due to financial reasons. Shortly thereafter, Sigmon Environmental Service began operating an active septic removal business.
