SAEGERTOWN INDUSTRIAL AREA
Superfund Site Profile
The Saegertown Industrial Area Site is located in Saegertown, Crawford County, Pennsylvania. Saegertown is located approximately 25 miles south of Erie, Pennsylvania. Four companies previously occupied the 100-acre industrial area site. Due to past operations at the LORD Corporation, an adhesives manufacturer; Saegertown Manufacturing Corporation (SMC), a steel components manufacturer; Spectrum Controls Incorporated (SCI), a ceramic manufacturer; and General American Transportation Company (GATX), a railroad car repair facility, soil, sediment and groundwater were contaminated with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing. The site was added to the Superfund program's National Priorities List (NPL) in February 1990.
