Site Progress

On March 31, 2011, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and Pharmacia & Upjohn Company LLC entered into an updated Administrative Order on Consent to facilitate site remediation and return the property to productive use. The site-wide remedy will provide long-term protection to human health and the environment and will return the property to productive use.
