Background

Intel Magnetics is a 3-acre groundwater site in Santa Clara, California. A facility produced and tested magnetic products and computer memories on site. Micro Storage occupied the site from 1985 to 1986 and used the facility for research and development and pilot manufacturing. Micro Storage also occupied a property adjacent to and upgradient from the site that contributes to the contamination. Monitoring wells on the site are contaminated with semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), believed to have resulted from surface spills and a leak from an underground storage tank. Following construction of the site’s remedy, groundwater monitoring is ongoing.

What Has Been Done to Clean Up the Site?

The site is being addressed through federal, state and potentially responsible party (PRP) actions.

Five-Year Reviews continue to assess the protectiveness of the remedy. The previous FYR, conducted in 2012, found no pathways of exposure.
