MetadataShow full item record
The Malone Service Company (MSC) is adjacent to Galveston Bay and associated wetlands in Texas City, Galveston County, Texas. The site covers approximately 150 acres and was used as a hazardous waste storage, reclamation, and disposal facility from 1964 to 1996. The MSC site was listed on the National Priorities List (NPL) on June 14, 2001, based on evidence that hazardous substances from the facility have contaminated the underlying groundwater and have migrated to Galveston Bay, a National Estuary and major fishery, and associated wetlands. The Texas Department of Health (TDH) under a cooperative agreement with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) reviewed available environmental information for the site and evaluated the primary pathways through which people might come into contact with contaminants from the site. Based on available information, we have concluded that, at present, none of these pathways present a public health hazard. A brief review of the exposure pathways that were considered is presented below
