SITE BACKGROUND

www.epa.gov/superfund/oconnor
 
The 23-acre O'Connor Company site is located in Augusta, Maine. In the 1950s, the company began operating a salvage and electrical transformer recycling business at the site. Operations included stripping and recycling transformers containing polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-laden oil. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities and monitoring are ongoing.
