SITE BACKGROUND

The 85-acre Westinghouse Elevator Co. Plant site is located in Cumberland Township, Pennsylvania. The company has made elevators and moving stairways at the site since 1968. Manufacturing operations process the elevators through paint and degreasing lines that use solvents. Until 1980, the company put the wastes into drums for disposal. Spills at the site contaminated soil, groundwater and surface water. Groundwater treatment and monitoring are ongoing.
