The 12.5-acre Union Chemical (UCC) site is an inactive paint stripping solvent manufacturing and recycling facility in Hope, Knox County, Maine. Land use in the area is residential, and a pond is located approximately 300 feet northeast of the site. In 1979, State investigations identified the presence of onsite ground water contamination. The selected remedial action for the site includes decontaminating all onsite facilities including the still building, production facilities, welding shop, incinerator complex, concrete pads, the church, all associated equipment, tanks, and above-ground drums.
