Superfund Site Profile
The 113-acre Revere Chemical Co. site is located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. An acid, metal and plating waste processing facility operated at the site. The facility is also suspected of accepting organic solvent waste. Site operations included placement of wastes containing chromic acid, copper sulfate and other heavy metals, as well as sulfuric acid and ammonia, in unlined earthen lagoons. Historical operations and poor waste handling practices contaminated soil, groundwater, surface water and sediment with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
