Background

The 75-acre Westinghouse Electric Corporation (Sunnyvale Plant) site is the former location of an electrical transformer manufacturing facility. Manufacturing of steam generators, marine propulsion systems and missile launching systems for the Department of Defense (DoD) currently takes place on the site. Groundwater contamination resulted from a storage tank leaking polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and from localized spills. Following initial actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
