  • Site Description
    Stage of Clean-up: Construction Completed

    Conditions at proposal (June 24, 1988): The JFD Electronics/Channel Master site occupies 13 acres on Industrial Drive in Oxford, Granville County, North Carolina. During 1962-79, JFD Electronics manufactured television antennas on the site. A lagoon covering approximately 23,400 square feet was built in 1964-65 to dispose of sludge generated by treating waste water, primarily rinse water from a CHROMATE conversion process and copper/nickel electroplating. In 1980, Channel Master, a division of Avnet, Inc., purchased the property. In 1983, half of the lagoon was filled and used as a truck parking lot. A building on the property is rented by a local department store and used as a warehouse. Approximately 25 percent of the property is contaminated, according to Channel Master. The company found CHROMIUM, LEAD, and other HEAVY METALS in the sludge, and halogenated organic compounds, including TRICHLOROETHANE, TETRACHLOROETHYLENE, and trans-1,2-dichloroethane, in on-site shallow monitoring wells it had constructed.  More...
