This facility achieved a "Remedy Construction Complete" determination on August 14, 2007. The waste storage tanks and container areas were "clean closed" in accordance with RCRA regulations. A groundwater pump and treat system and an air sparge/soil vapor extraction (AS/SVE) system were installed. Certain contaminated soils were excavated and disposed of off site, while other contaminated soils were left inaccessible in situ. A vapor barrier and sub-slab depressurization system were installed beneath an on-site facility building to mitigate exposure risk from vapor intrusion.
Cleanup Actions or environmental indicators characterizing the entire facility are shown below. This listing, and all the data on this page, come from EPA’s RCRAInfo and are refreshed nightly to this page. For this table, a blank in the Status column could mean the action either has not occurred or has not been reported in RCRAInfo.

The site was originally developed in 1888 by the Bryant Electric Company (later a subsidiary of Westinghouse Electric Corporation) and was used to manufacture electrical devices such as circuit breakers, switches, and power panels. Operations at the facility included metal plating and finishing, dip-painting, welding, fabrication of steel and aluminum parts, plastic molding, assembly, electrical testing, and packaging and storage of manufactured electrical devices. These processes generated metal hydroxide sludges, spent solvents, and paint sludges, which were managed in an on-site greater than 90 day storage tank and container network. Manufacturing operations at the site ceased in 1988, and the buildings were demolished in 1996.
This approximately 4 acre facility is located in an industrial area of Bridgeport, CT. According to the US Geological Survey's National Hydrography Dataset, this facility is located in the Pequonnock River-Frontal Long Island Sound watershed and the nearest fresh surface water body is located on or immediately adjacent to the property. Geology in this area has been observed to be influenced by shallow groundwater.
Institutional and Engineering Controls help ensure human exposure and groundwater migration are under control at a cleanup facility. Where control types have been reported by states and EPA in EPA’s RCRAInfo, they are shown below. Not all control types are needed at all facilities, and some facilities do not require any controls. Where there are blanks, the control types may not be needed, may not be in place, or may not be reported in RCRAInfo.
