Superfund Site Profile
The 12-acre Brodhead Creek site is located in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania at the confluence of Brodhead and McMichael creeks. From 1888 to 1944, a coal gasification plant operated at the site. The plant, which operated along the west bank of Brodhead Creek, produced coal tar wastes during its operation. Coal tar waste disposal practices contaminated groundwater, soil and creek sediment. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing. EPA removed the site from the NPL in 2001.
