Chemtronics Superfund Site Cleanup Costs

The federal government resolved claims against Chemtronics and Northrop Grumman Systems under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) relating to the release and handling of hazardous substances at the Chemtronics Superfund Site in North Carolina. (Northrop Grumman Systems is the successor-in-interest to Northrup Carolina, Inc., which owned the site from 1965 to 1978.) Under the terms of a consent decree, the companies agreed to pay $255,349. In April 2022, Northrop Grumman and Chemtronics agreed to pay an additional $18.2 million for future clean-up work at the site.
