Background

The PCB Wastes site consists of eight separate locations throughout the United States-administered Trust Territory and several independent islands of the Pacific. In 1982, an investigation revealed polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in drums and transformers and improper storage practices at the subsites. After cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1986.
