The Site is located at 730 North Main Street, Waterbury, Connecticut, at coordinates N Lat 41 33' 44" and W Long. 73 01' 54" west longitude. The Site is bounded by commercial properties to the north, residential properties and the Naugatuck River to the east, residential properties to the south, and residential neighborhood and Martin Luther King Jr. Park to the west.

EPAC was a metal plating company that was a tenant at the Great Brook Industrial Park, which is owned by Waterbury Realty, LLC. The industrial park is a multi-section, light manufacturing, industrial-use brick complex located on approximately 11 acres. EPAC operated at one of the buildings at the industrial park until December 25, 2002, at which time a fire destroyed much of the building. An adjacent, partially-intact, two-story building is open to the burned-out remains of the EPAC building on one side. This two-story structure is owned by Waterbury Realty, LLC, but was vacant and not leased to EPAC.

EPA and the Superfund Technical Assessment and Response Team contractor (START) mobilized to the site on March 20, 2003 to conduct the site investigation. Sampling conducted during the investigation confirmed the presence of asbestos on a boiler unit amid the remains of the EPAC facility and PCBs in the stained soils beneath the transformers.

The presence of asbestos, PCBs, and drums containing hazardous substances posed a direct contact threat to local residents and those who may enter the Site. Access to the Site is unrestricted, and the burned-out remains of the structure may act as an attractive nuisance, bringing unauthorized individuals in close contact with site hazards. Based on the findings of the site investigation, a removal action was recommended in a closure memorandum dated April 21, 2003.
