Redevelopment at the Site

The 140-acre NCR Corp. (Millsboro Plant) Superfund site is located in Millsboro, Delaware. From 1967 to 1980, National Cash Register (NCR) made cash registers and other electronic devices on a portion of the site. Wastes from plating operations discharged into on-site concrete lagoons. Site operators disposed of sludge that accumulated in the lagoons in a pit on site. In the early 1980s, First Omni Bank purchased a portion of the site and built a bank. From 1981 to 1983, under state oversight, NCR conducted site investigations, which identified groundwater contamination. In 1987, EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL). A groundwater pump and treat system began operating at the site in 1988. First Omni Bank remained open during the cleanup process and continues its operations at the site today as M&T Bank.
