The Erie Coke Site is located along Lake Erie at the foot of East Avenue in the City of Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania. The site was used for industrial manufacturing since approximately 1833. In December 2019, the facility ceased operation.

In May 2020, The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) formally requested assistance from EPA's Removal Program to conduct assessment activities at the Erie Coke Site. Based on a site evaluation in July 2020, EPA determined that the site poses a threat to public health and the environment and that a removal action, or cleanup, is necessary. In September 2020, EPA signed an Action Memorandum which approved the cleanup of hazardous substances at the facility. This Action Memorandum, along with a September 2020 Community Update Fact Sheet and November 2020 Community Update Postcard, can be found in the "Resources" column of this webpage, under "Documents."

EPA is creating a Community Involvement Plan for the Erie Coke site. If you would like to be involved in the community interview process for the final plan or if you would like more information, please contact Katie Page at page.katherine@epa.gov or 215-814-2409.

Thanksgiving - Site work will be on hold from November 22-29, 2020
Christmas and New Year's Day - Site work will be on hold from December 20, 2020 through January 3, 2021.
