Background

The American Thermostat Co. site is located in South Cairo, New York. Thermostat manufacturing for small appliances led to volatile organic compound (VOC) contamination in the ground water. VOCs are potentially harmful contaminants that easily evaporate in the air. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
