The contamination associated with the site is known to have migrated one-half mile southwest of the facility to Mill Pond Creek.The surrounding area is zoned for commercial use but at present is primarily residential. About 6,400 people obtain drinking water from public and private wells within three miles of the site. A private well is about 1,250 feet north of the chemical company. Surface water within three miles downstream of the site is used for recreational activities. Mill Pond and Mill Pond Creek are 2,500 feet from the site, and White Lake is 7,000 feet away from the site.

Site Updates

November 2013

EPA completed a review of the site's cleanup. This type of review is required at least every five years where the cleanup is complete but hazardous waste remains managed on-site. These reviews are done to ensure that the cleanup continues to protect people and the environment.

The review included evaluations of:

  • Background information
  • Cleanup requirements
  • Effectiveness of the cleanup and any anticipated future actions
  • Maintenance and monitoring efforts
  • Ways for EPA to operate more efficiently

    The review found that the cleanup continues to protect people and the environment however, additional actions are necessary to ensure that it remains protective in the future. The next scheduled review will be in 2018.
