Superfund Site Profile
The 19-acre Cryochem, Inc. site is located in Boyertown, Pennsylvania. A metals fabrication facility has operated at the site since 1962. Operators used solvents to clean finished metal parts and disposed of excess solvents in the shop drain system. This drain system discharged into nearby surface waters. These activities contaminated soil, surface water and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
