RCRA Corrective Action activities at this facility are being conducted under the direction of EPA Region 3 with assistance from the State. There are no institutional controls at this time.
Notice of Violations (NOV) was issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) to the Facility in August, 2002. The NOV addressed discharges of petroleum into Tunungwant Creek adjacent to the Facility.
The Facility proposed to submit a cleanup proposal to PADEP under the Land Recycling Act
and Clean Streams Law.
The Facility is located in Bradford and Foster Townships, McKean County, PA. The facility property is approximately 45 acres in size. It has been operated by various owners as a refinery since at least 1890. It has been currently owned and occupied by American Refining Group (ARG) since 1997. Previous owners and operators of the Facility included Witco Corporation, Inc. (Witco) from 1966 through 1997. For 16 years prior to 1966, the site was operated as an oil refinery under Kendall Oil Company. Prior to 1950, the site was owned by the City of Bradford, which also operated an oil refinery on the premises. The City of Bradford purchased the site in the early 1900s from the Emery Oil Company. Emery built the Facility in 1881. Currently, the Facility is separated into two main areas to include: Foster Brook Area and Main Refinery.
