The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conducted recent sampling of residential yards next to the former Federal-Mogul property in Detroit. The sampling found lead levels on 10 properties greater than what health experts consider safe.

From 1925 to the 1970s, an industrial facility operated at 11031 Shoemaker St. Several companies including Federal-Mogul Corp., Bower Bearing Manufacturers and Ernst Realty Co./Ernst Fuel & Supply did manufacturing at the site.

Site Updates

October 2012 Update

To fix the lead problem next spring, EPA is proposing to remove 1 to 2 feet of yard soil and replace it with clean soil. Over the winter, EPA will be preparing plans for the cleanup, asking residents to give EPA permission to be on their property, checking utility lines and securing the necessary funding to complete the project.
