- EPA met with the facility on October 6, 2009. EPA and the WVDEP will decide if additional information or sampling at the facility site is required to determine whether the environmental indicators have been met or if corrective action is required for the facility.
- In order to address the identified follow-up items, available data and reports are being reviewed by the EPA to determine the next steps in Corrective Action program and to make a determination with regard to the Environmental Indicators.
- The Facility is located at 3028 Birch Drive, Weirton, West Virginia, which is in the Half Moon Industrial Park. The Facility was originally known as Continental Can until 1987, when it changed its name to the US Can Company. In 2006, US Can Company was purchased by Ball Aerosol and Specialty Container Corporation. Throughout these name changes, the Facility has conducted the same or similar process, which is the production of metal products used in aerosol cans.
- The Facility fabricates components used in the manufacture of several varieties of cans by shearing steel rolls into sheets that are then painted and cured in drying ovens. The steel sheets can then receive additional painting and decorating on printing lines
- The surrounding parking area is paved with asphalt and the entire site is enclosed by an eight-foot high chain link fence with an entrance gate, which is locked during non-operating hours. A concrete loading dock is located on the western side of the building, which has historically been used for storage of several dozen steel, 55-gallon drums containing unused product. Adjacent to the loading dock is a concrete platform, which is used during waste handling operations. Three one-foot wide by four-foot long abandoned trench drains are located in the pavement, below the platform. A maintenance shop and office are located in the southeastern corner of the production area.
