Superfund Site Profile
Intel Magnetics is a 3-acre groundwater site in Santa Clara, California. A facility produced and tested magnetic products and computer memories on site. Micro Storage occupied the site from 1985 to 1986 and used the facility for research and development and pilot manufacturing. Micro Storage also occupied a property adjacent to and upgradient from the site that contributes to the contamination. Monitoring wells on the site are contaminated with semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), believed to have resulted from surface spills and a leak from an underground storage tank.
