SITE BACKGROUND

A busy commercial seaport, New Bedford Harbor works to support its surrounding communities as it did through the whaling and industrial times, but the harbor environment struggles from a more recent past of electrical device production which caused it to be one of EPA's largest Superfund cleanup sites.
