Superfund Site Profile
The Hooker (S-Area) site is a former landfill in Niagara Falls, New York. Occidental Chemical Corporation (OCC) owns the 8-acre site property. OCC disposed of about 63,000 tons of chemical processing wastes at the landfill from 1947 to 1961. OCC also used the landfill for disposal of other wastes and debris, a practice that ended in 1975. Landfilling activities contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, the site no longer poses a threat to nearby residents or the environment. Long-term groundwater treatment and monitoring are ongoing.
