Superfund Site: PETER COOPER CORPORATION (MARKHAMS)
Superfund Site Profile
EPA is in the process of updating the site profile page with additional current information. When the updates are complete, we will remove this message. Until then, we thank you for your patience and consideration in this matter.
The Peter Cooper Corporation site is located in Dayton, New York. The 106-acre site was an industrial waste disposal area for the Peter Cooper Corporation (PCC), a former animal glue and adhesives plant in Gowanda, New York. The wastes contaminated soil, leachate and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Contaminants found on site included sludges that contained arsenic, metals and organic compounds. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in September 2010.
