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 GCL Tie and Treating (GCL) site is located in Sidney, New York. The 60-acre site includes two major areas – the GCL property and the non-GCL property. The 26-acre GCL property consists of an inactive sawmill and wood treating facility. The non-GCL portion of the site includes two light manufacturing companies located on a parcel of land next to the GCL property. Threats posed by contaminated soil, aboveground tanks and drums containing creosote wastes and sludges have been addressed. Groundwater treatment is ongoing. Area residents receive drinking water from public supply wells, which are routinely tested to ensure compliance with federal and state standards. Fencing restricts access to the site.
