The 35th Avenue Site encompasses the three communities surrounding the Walter Coke Plant located at 3500 35th Avenue, Birmingham, AL. The three communities are Harriman Park, Collegeville and Fairmont. Through a sampling event overseen by RCRA in 2009 it was determined that there were residential, commercial and public properties that had exceedances above Removal Action Levels for Benzo(a)Pyrene and Arsenic.

EPA Region 4 is currently obtaining access agreements and sampling approximately of 1000 properties in the three neighborhoods.
