- On August 25, 2005, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) and PADEP's consultants conducted a site visit. The visit consisted of a site tour, and information gathering to assess the current status of the facility. EPA is evaluating the available information to determine if the Environmental Indicators, Current Human Exposures and Migration of Contaminated Groundwater, are under control.
- The Metso facility is located at 240 Arch Street, York, York County, PA. This site is located in a residential and light industrial area.
- Operations began at the facility in 1965 under Koppers Company. With a change in ownership, Koppers Company, Mineral Processing Systems Division submitted a name change to Mineral Processing Systems, Inc. in a letter to PADEP, dated December 5, 1984. In 1992 an ownership and name change of Mineral Processing Systems, Inc. to Svedala Industries, Inc, took place. The company was also referred to as Allis Mineral Systems, a division of Svedala Industries, Inc. At an unknown date Svedala Industries, Inc. sold Allis Mineral Systems to Metso Minerals Industries, Inc., the current owner.
