Background

The 13-acre Montrose Chemical Corp. site in Los Angeles, California, was the location of a dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) manufacturing facility from 1947 to 1982. Various hazardous substances entered the environment through several pathways during this time. EPA is investigating the extent of contamination in certain media and has finished cleanup for others. Cleanup, operation and maintenance activities, and monitoring are ongoing.
