Superfund Site Profile
The JFD Electronics/Channel Master site is located in Oxford, North Carolina. It includes an area where an antenna, amplifier and booster manufacturing facility operated from 1961 to 1984, and a packaging and distribution facility for electronic parts operated from 1984 to 2003. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated groundwater, sludge and soil resulting from operations and waste handling practices at the site. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and the site’s potentially responsible party (PRPs), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. By treating and monitoring groundwater, performing additional studies, preventing exposure and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, NCDENR and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
