A view of the former Quehanna facility
from the entrance road
Located in northwestern Clearfield County, Quehanna has been the location of many businesses that have used radiation in their manufacturing processes. The facility contains residual radioactivity left over from work conducted decades ago for the federal government.
Under an approved plan by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the responsible regulatory agency, the Commonwealth began cleanup work in 1998. PermaGrain Products, Inc., a local manufacturer of specialty wood tile and flooring occupied this site until filing for bankruptcy in December of 2002.
