About the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative
This nationally coordinated effort provides EPA and its partners with a process to return Superfund sites to productive use. Learn more at Superfund Redevelopment Initiative.
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.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2019, EPA had data on one on-site business. This business employed 6 people and generated an estimated $2,400,000 in annual sales revenue. View additional information about redevelopment economics at Superfund sites.
