Public Health and Environmental Concerns

A gasoline release of unknown origin contaminated the soil and groundwater. The groundwater contaminant (benzene) plume extended off site for approximately 1200 feet and impacted several residential wells in the Six Mile Village Subdivision. The benzene plume co-mingled with the area-wide chlorinated solvent groundwater plume.

The majority of contaminated soil was excavated in 1998. Natural attenuation processes has cleaned up the off-site ground water to drinking water standards.


Current Status


All active remediation is complete.
