Threats and Contaminants

On January 28, 1997, an Emergency Response Assessment was conducted at the State Road Site by EPA Region III in cooperation with the Philadelphia Fire Department’s Hazardous Material Unit. A TSCA - PCB Compliance Inspection was also performed on that date. Approximately 24 transformers (or other oil-filled equipment), possibly containing PCBs, were discovered. It was also found that four transformers on the roof had been overturned and were empty. Oil stains were found on the building wall, sidewalk and street area readily accessed by the public.

Cleanup Progress
