U.S. Gauge on the 900 block of Clymer Avenue near downtown Sellersville has been on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Resource Conservation and Recover Act Superfund site list since 1993. Due to extensive groundwater contamination, the 44-acre site—known by the government as Ametek U.S. Gauge Division Plant No. 2—has a boundary for its groundwater that is heavily monitored and entered the remedy phase in June 2012, per the EPA. It claims the attainment of drinking water at the site to Maximum Containment Levels—the threshold limit on the amount of a substance that is allowed in public water systems under the Safe Drinking Water Act—is "impracticable." Thus, Ametek U.S. Gauge must use hydraulic control within a delineated boundary to make sure the groundwater contamination remains stable, per the EPA. It must also have long-term groundwater monitoring and reporting. One thing the EPA also enforced: The site cannot be developed as residential and public or domestic wells cannot be installed in the monitoring zone. Thus, Bucks County Industrial Development Authority has stepped in to make the money start moving. It will use $5 million—$500,000 set aside by the county and a $4.5 million low interest loan by the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Financing Authority—to develop the site as an industrial-only manufacturing complex over nine 4- to 5-acre parcels, per the Perkasie News-Herald. The vision: Build 850,000 square feet of space, to draw in 1,000 new and retained jobs over seven years. Each parcel will have public sewer and water access; the site will be served by a loop road. U.S. Gauge manufactures pressure and temperature measurement products. It is headquartered domestically on Keith Valley Road in Horsham Township. Read more on the development here.
