The Carrier-Bryant Site is a commercial property located at 1100 West 21st St. in Indianapolis, Ind.  The site measures 20 acres overall and includes five abandoned former manufacturing and warehouse buildings of approximately 10 acres under roof.  Manufacturing of furnace and air conditioning units occurred at the property from the 1950s until approximately 1980.  In 1985, the property was sold and used for warehousing hardware store supplies.  The property has been abandoned since approximately 2000.

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment reported the presence of at least five underground storage tanks. The tanks were not sampled during the ESA and therefore, it is unknown whether or not the entirety of the tanks still exist or if any or the historic contents of the tanks are still present. The tanks historically contained gasoline, fuel oil and potentially paint materials. The ESA also reported at least five above-ground storage tanks of unknown content, numerous discarded drums and containers, and friable asbestos. The drums were observed to be in damaged and/or degraded conditions and areas of staining were observed on the flooring in the direct vicinity of the drums. Additionally, large piles of discarded refuse and construction debris were observed throughout the buildings and strewn throughout the grounds. Discarded materials observed included asphalt, concrete, brick debris and tires. An asbestos inspection conducted in January 2011 reported friable asbestos in multiple locations. The deteriorating condition of the building, evidence of vagrancy occupation, and vandalism presented potential human and environmental exposures to hazardous substances. The City of Indianapolis requested EPA’s assistance to evaluate and mitigate threats posed by abandoned drums, containers, tanks, and asbestos at the Site. EPA will be performing a time-critical removal of the hazardous substances at the site.
