Shenango produces iron, coke, and coke by-products. Shenango was founded in 1962 when Shenango Furnace purchased Pittsburgh Coke and Chemical Company. The current coke ovens and chemical operations at Shenango were constructed around 1930. Sometimes around 1952, a second blast furnace was installed. Shenango currently operates one “56 oven four meter battery”.
Groundwater was found contaminated with benzene, chloroform, naphthalene, arsenic and manganese; thus the soil is potentially contaminated with these same contaminants.
The need for Institutional Controls is yet to be determined.
The site is under continued use.
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Corrective Action activities at this facility have been conducted under the direction of EPA Region 3.
