Background

The Black River PCBs site is located along the Black River in Champion, Carthage and West Carthage in Jefferson County, New York. The site is currently delineated as a three mile stretch of the Black River. The site consists of PCB-contaminated sediment that was a result of historical industrial discharges, and, at least in part, from wastewater discharged from the Carthage/West Carthage Water Pollution Control Facility, a sewage treatment plant. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List in September 2010. EPA is currently investigating site conditions.
