The Pike and Mulberry Site was proposed for addition to the Superfund program National Priorities List on Sept. 14, 2012.

The Pike and Mulberry Street PCE plume site is in Martinsville, Ind. There are several possible sources of contamination at this site, including Master Wear, a commercial and institutional dry cleaning and laundry operation formerly operating at 28 N. Main St. The 38-acre plume is contaminated with chlorinated solvents, primarily tetrachloroethylene (often referred to as PCE), and has affected one of Martinsville’s municipal drinking water wells. The wellfield serves about 15,000 people and Martinsville has operated an activated carbon filtration system since 2005 to remove PCE from its water. However, monitoring has shown that PCE levels continue to increase.

April 2015

EPA staff will be in Martinsville, Indiana to talk with its residents, local officials, community leaders and media representatives about community concerns regarding the Pike and Mulberry Streets PCE Plume site. These community interviews will help the EPA site team learn how and when Martinsville’s residents want to be involved so EPA can prepare a meaningful community involvement plan (CIP).

The interviews will be conducted at the Morgan County Public Library, 110 S. Jefferson St., Martinsville. When the CIP is completed, it will specify outreach activities that the EPA expects to carry out in the coming years to involve Martinsville’s residents as the cleanup project progresses.

The Martinsville’s interview dates are May 4–6. EPA invites you to participate in these interviews by calling Teresa Jones, Community Involvement Coordinator at 312-886-0725 or 800-621-8431, ext. 60725 or at jones.teresa@epa.gov.
