A civil complaint against two businesses is looking to recover the costs of an investigation and cleanup of groundwater contamination at a superfund site in New Cassel and Hicksville, the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Eastern District of New York announced Monday.

The civil complaint is being filed against IMC Eastern Corporation (IMC) and Island Transportation Corporation (ITC). These companies operated facilities within the New Cassel Industrial Area— IMC at 570 Main St. and ITC at 299 Main St. in Westbury—an approximately 170-acre industrial and commercial area located north of part of the superfund site. 

The compliant alleges these businesses contributed to groundwater contamination at the 6.5-square-mile superfund site, which is located in the towns of Hempstead, North Hempstead and Oyster Bay. It includes residential, commercial and industrial areas.
