The Delaware City PVC site is located two miles northwest of Delaware City, New Castle County, Delaware. In 1966 Stauffer Chemical Company (SCC) of Westport, Connecticut, founded the Delaware City PVC Plant, which is used for the manufacturing of polyvinylchloride resin (PVC), polyvinyl acetate and other polymers. An EPA conducted inspection in May 1982 indicated serious contamination of the shallow ground water. Currently, ground water, surface water, and soils are contaminated with PVC, benzyl chloride monomer (VCM), TCE, and 1,2-dichloroethane (EDC).
