The Old Mill site is located on Mill Road in Rock Creek, Ohio.  It consists of two parcels of land referred to as the Henfield property (three acres) and the Kraus property (10 acres). Five dilapidated wooden buildings and four concrete silos were located on the Henfield property, which was the former location of a feed mill and later a potting soil operation. Surface water flow from the Henfield property drains to the southwest corner and then to a ditch which discharges to the Rock Creek. The Kraus property was partially covered with piles of railroad ballast. Surface water flow from the Kraus property drains toward the northwest to a ditch which discharges to Badger Run and the Grand River.

In 1989, EPA cleaned up volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, caused by solvents, oils, resins, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).  An extraction system was installed to recover contaminated ground water from  the shallow and deep aquifers along with a shallow aquifer intercepting trench and two monitoring wells to address an underground area of contamination (plume).
