 EPA TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING IN ROCK HILL, S.C.,
 REGARDING THE RUTLEDGE PROPERTY SUPERFUND SITE
 ATLANTA, March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public meeting Thursday, March 19, in Rock Hill, S.C., to discuss plans for a Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) of the Rutledge Property (Rock Hill Chemical Company) Superfund site.
 The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Sullivan Middle School, 1825 Edin Terrace in Rock Hill. EPA officials, along with officials from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), will discuss the general approach to the Remedial Investigation and will be available to answer questions and address concerns from the public.
 The RI/FS is the first step in the cleanup process under the Superfund program. The Remedial Investigation will determine the nature and extent of contamination. The Feasibility Study will evaluate alternatives to address any contamination found during the investigation. The RI/FS is estimated to take one to two years. Following the RI/FS, EPA will propose a cleanup plan and present it for public comment. A final remedy will be outlined in the agency's Record of Decision.
 The Rutledge Property is located between Cherry Road and Farlow Street, just east of Cranford Street. The property is a 4.5-acre parcel which includes land owned by Bill Rutledge and land owned by South Carolina Federal Savings Bank. The Rock Hill Chemical Company operated a solvent reclamation facility at the site from 1960 to 1965. The company ceased operations late in 1965, after a fire at the facility.
 Contaminated soil and buried hazardous wastes were removed from the bank's property in 1985. Between 1987 and 1989, a second removal occurred on Rutledge's property. This removal action, conducted by EPA, included the excavation of contaminated soil, the closure of five above-ground storage tanks and the disposal of their contents. The Rutledge Property site was added to EPA's National Priorities List of hazardous waste sites in February 1990.
