Superfund Site Profile
The GMH Electronics site, formerly known as the Halifax Road site, is located in Roxboro, North Carolina. The sources of contamination associated with the site likely originated from at least three areas, including the former electronics operations area at the GMH property, a former gasoline station on the GMH property, and a former gasoline station across the intersection. The site includes a contaminated groundwater plume that extends beyond these two properties. Residential properties are located on the northeast and southwest corners of the intersection, as well as on all sides of the site. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2009 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR), and the U.S. Geological Survey (the USGS) have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. By conducting groundwater studies and preparing a cleanup plan for the site, EPA, NCDENR and the USGS continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
