- As part of the Environmental Indicator (EI) inspection and evaluation for Current Human Exposures and Migration of Contaminated Groundwater, a comprehensive record search and review were conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) and its contractor, Michael Baker Jr., Inc (Baker). This undertaking consisted of reviewing the Facility's manufacturing operations and waste management practices, RCRA permit applications, historical spills and releases, documentation of previous site inspections, RCRA closure activities and correspondence between the EPA, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protections (PADEP) and the Facility.
- On September 2007, a representative of Baker, conducted a site visit. No obvious areas of concern were identified during the visit. Historically, there appears to be no indications of spills or releases that have negatively impacted soil, groundwater, surface water, or air that would lead to adverse impacts to human health or the environment at this time.
- EPA determined that there is no unacceptable human exposure to contamination nor is there any evidence of groundwater contamination caused by the Facility. Furthermore, EPA concludes that there have been no past or current releases that warrant further investigation or corrective action at this Facility at this time. On September 2009, EPA issued a Final Determination that no further action or land use controls are required at the Facility at this time.
- The former AMP, Inc. facility (AMP) consisted of approximately 2 acres that included the former technology and chemical buildings. Operations at the site began in November 1975. The former AMP, Inc. facility was a manufacturer and producer of electrical/electronic connection devices. It conducted experimental testing and product development of printed circuit boards.
- In 1999, Tyco Electronics Corporation (TEC) purchased AMP Inc., and its facilities. Subsequently, TEC sold the technology and chemical storage buildings to ABC Supply Company, who later sold the buildings to Faulkner Honda car dealership who is the current owner. The dealership has since converted the buildings into an auto service center.
- EPA determined that there is no unacceptable human exposure to contamination nor is there any evidence of groundwater contamination caused by the Facility.
