Sellersville wants say in future of contaminated U.S. Gauge site By Bob Keeler Perkasie News Herald (PA) December 15, 2011As the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency works on completing its "final remedy" for groundwater contamination at the 43-acre Ametek U.S. Gauge Division property on Clymer Avenue in Sellersville, the borough is weighing in on the matter.
"One of the things that has been proposed by the EPA are certain restrictions of how that land can be used in the future, regardless of who the owner is," said Randall White, Sellersville's attorney. "Clearly, this is the biggest tract of land left in the borough and the borough wants a seat at the table, at least with regard to restrictions."
In an EPA Statement of Basis, dated Aug. 23 of this year, the EPA says one of the restrictions should be, "Continued use of the site for industrial purposes only."
"I don't think there's any consensus among borough council as to what they'd like to see happen to that property, but they'd like to keep their options open," White said.
