Background

The 8-acre Metropolitan Mirror and Glass Co., Inc. site is located in Frackville in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Metropolitan Mirror manufactured mirrors on site from 1959 to 1982. Metropolitan Mirror used silver solutions, paint strippers, paint thinners and other solvents. Wastes from these operations were disposed of in four settling lagoons, which contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. After construction of the site’s remedy, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in August 2005.
