EPA Superfund Program: COMPUTER CIRCUITS, HAUPPAUGE, NY

Superfund Site Profile

The Computer Circuits site is located in an industrial park in Hauppauge, New York. From 1969 to 1977, Computer Circuits Corporation operated a circuit board manufacturing facility at the 2-acre property, discharged industrial wastewaters into industrial cesspools on site. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with copper and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are potentially harmful contaminants that easily evaporate in the air.  VOC contaminants (in particular, trichloroethylene (TCE)) were also identified at levels of concern in indoor air.  Contaminants in groundwater and indoor air posed a risk to human health.
