Redevelopment at the Site

The 3-acre Intel Magnetics Superfund site is commonly referred to as the Intel Magnetics/Micro Storage Corporation or IM/MSC site. The site is located in Santa Clara, California. Past activities at the IM building and nearby MSC building resulted in shallow groundwater contamination. Site investigations identified two main but distinct sources of contamination: the IM facility underground waste-solvent storage tank and the chemical storage area at MSC. EPA added the IM site to the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1986. In 1988, EPA included the MSC site with the IM site as one combined Superfund site on the NPL. A groundwater treatment system operated on the site from 1986 until 1995. Groundwater monitoring continues. Microsemi RFI and Micro-Chem currently operate at the site, and use the former IM and MSC buildings for administration and high-tech related manufacturing.
