Background

The North Penn Area 12 Superfund Site is located in Worcester Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The Site includes a 26-acre parcel previously operated by Transicoil, Inc, a 12-acre area previously operated by the U.S. Army as a Nike missile control facility, and the associated groundwater contamination.  As part of manufacturing operations, the facilities used trichloroethylene (TCE) and other solvents to degrease parts and equipment, resulting in groundwater contamination at the Site. EPA added the Site to the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990.
