EPA Superfund Program: DURHAM MEADOWS, DURHAM, CT

Superfund Site Profile

www.epa.gov/superfund/durham

The Durham Meadows site is located in Durham, Connecticut. Two companies make or once made metal products on site. Facility operations led to groundwater contamination. Wastewater and waste sludge were disposed of in lagoons or were stored on site in drums. Contamination from both migrated into groundwater, affecting nearby private wells. The state ordered the manufacturing companies in the 1980s to provide drinking water supplies. Following initial actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
