- The Final decision for the site was signed by EPA on July 1, 2006. The Final decision required Firestone to continue to monitor groundwater until the appropriate levels are achieved thru natural attenuation. EPA also required Firestone to restrict groundwater use at the facility thru institutional controls.
- On December 16, 2008, Firestone signed a Facility lead Agreement to implement the Corrective Measures as prescribed in the Final decision.
- Firestone has implemented a groundwater monitoring plan for the site and also a Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions and Deed Notice has been attached to the property.
- The AlliedSignal Site (formerly Firestone Fiber) consists of an approximately 37-acre parcel located south of the Hadson Power property and east of the Exeter Site. Firestone operated a polyester plant on the AlliedSignal parcel from 1973 until 1995. In 1995, the property was sold to AlliedSignal, and Firestone leased back a small area called the F-62 process area, which it continued to operate through approximately June 1999. AlliedSignal operated the plant from the time of the property transaction in 1995 to early 2000, when Allied Signal merged with Honeywell. In 2000, all plant operations were discontinued.
- The main constituents of concern are TCE, 1.2 Dicholoroethane in groundwater.
