Superfund Site Profile

The Consolidated Iron and Metal site is an inactive car and scrap metal junkyard in Newburgh, New York.  From World War I until the early 1940s, the Eureka Shipyard operated at the 7-acre site.  Consolidated Iron and Metal Company’s scrap metal processing and storage operations began in the mid-1950s and continued at the site until the facility's closure in 1999.  Facility operations led to soil contamination.  Contaminants include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and metals.
