MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA
Superfund Site Profile
The 11.5-acre Spectra-Physics, Inc. site in Mountain View, California, has been the location of an electronics and gas laser manufacturing operation since 1961. These activities and several on-site wastewater sumps contaminated soil and groundwater with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including tetrachloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), vinyl chloride and 1,1-dichloroethane (1,1-DCA). Cleanup activities and monitoring are ongoing.
