Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England

Jim's Dry Cleaners

Jim's Dry Cleaners, 110 Aroostook Ave., Millinocket, Maine 04462

The site consists of two neighboring properties that operated as a dry cleaning facility and laundromat before 2007, during undetermined dates. The site was referred to EPA by the Maine Dept. of Environmental Protection due to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) detected in the indoor air. EPA samples detected tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE) in excess of acceptable state and federal levels. The preliminary results indicated the contaminants were coming from vapor in soil gas under the slab. Sampling indicated the contamination was accumulating beneath the sub-slab and permeating into the building. Cleanup work by contractors began Jan. 23, 2012. By Feb 22, when the cleanup up was finished, 70 gallons of solvents and flammable liquids and 75 pounds of pesticides had been packed and removed.
