Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England
Carvill Combing Company
The Carvill Combing Company Site, a former textile mill abandoned in the late 1970s, consisted of a two-story brick building, .4 acres of land and a 20,000-gallon underground storage tank holding several hundred gallons of unknown liquid. About 57 homes are within a quarter mile of the building and an elementary school is half a mile away. The building was in disrepair in 2003. Insulating and building materials were suspected to contain asbestos when EPA became involved. In late 2004 to spring of 2005, EPA demolished the mill building, disposed of 60 cubic yards of the asbestos-containing material (ACM) insulation and other building materials, about 820 tons of ACM-contaminated debris and restored/ re-graded the area where EPA excavated and demolished the building.
