Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

The 824-acre Navy Ships Parts Control Center site is located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The Navy Ships Parts Control Center, formerly known as the Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP), provided global management of repair parts for Navy ships during the 1940s. In the early 1950s, NAVICP became a repository for a variety of metal ores received as war payment and reprimand. Historical operations and past waste disposal activities contaminated soil, sediment and groundwater with hazardous chemicals.
