The 56-acre former Fairchild Semiconductor Corp. (Mountain View) site is located in Mountain View, California. A facility on site manufactured semiconductors. The site is one of three Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) sites that are being cleaned up simultaneously. The other two Superfund sites are the Intel - Mountain View site and the Raytheon site. All three sites are located in the Middlefield-Ellis-Whisman (MEW) Study Area and are being addressed collectively as the MEW Site. Site investigations at several of these facilities during 1981 and 1982 revealed extensive soil and groundwater contamination, primarily volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, and construction of the site’s long-term remedy, operation and maintenance activities and monitoring are ongoing.
