EPA Superfund Program: NORTH PENN - AREA 6, LANSDALE, PA

Superfund Site Profile

The North Penn – Area 6 site is located in and around the Borough of Landsdale in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The site is largely a groundwater contamination problem. Trichloroethene (TCE) and perchloroethene (PCE), the chemical components of solvents and degreasers, are the primary contaminants in the groundwater, although several other contaminants are present. Twenty-six facilities in the Lansdale area were originally identified as possible sources of contamination due to their use of site-related solvents. Groundwater cleanup is ongoing at some of the facilities. Design work for remedy implementation at the other facilities is ongoing.
