SITE BACKGROUND

The SMS Instruments site is located in Suffolk County, New York. The site is the location of an active commercial facility that includes a 34,000-square-foot building on a 1.5-acre lot. Formerly, the site was an active industrial facility whose operations included the overhauling of military aircraft components. Overhauling operations included cleaning, painting, degreasing, refurbishing, metal machining and testing. Facility operations contaminated groundwater and soil with hazardous chemicals. After immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, EPA put the site’s long-term remedy in place. EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in September 2010.
