Superfund Site Profile
The Ward Transformer site includes an area where Ward Transformer Company operated a facility that handled transformers, switchgear and other types of electrical equipment from 1964 to 2006. EPA placed the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) in 2003 because of contaminated fish tissue, sediment and soil caused by facility operations.
EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) and the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs) are investigating site conditions. They are taking steps to clean up the site to protect people and the environment from contamination.
