New York's Legacy of Trichloroethylene Toxic Sites

Inadequately remediated Brownfields and other toxic sites all over New York State pose TCE Soil Gas Vapor Intrusion (SVI) hazards that likely contribute to a Parkinson's crisis of enormous proportions. Brownfields are toxic sites where tax incentives are provided to promote site remediation. Government authorities, however, rarely require Brownfields to be comprehensively remediated.

Millions of New Yorkers have been exposed to TCE that is scientifically documented to be neurodegenerative, cancer-causing and otherwise highly toxic. Find out if you live on or near TCE toxic sites documented by government data.

Please note that the TCE sites documented below are not exhaustive. New TCE hazards are reported in New York virtually every day.
