The 20-acre Fadrowski Drum Disposal site is located in Franklin, Wisconsin. Edward J. Fadrowski owned the site property between 1970 and 1982 and operated an unlicensed disposal facility for demolition and construction debris. In December 1982, Menards, Inc. purchased the site property and two adjacent parcels and began building a Menards Home Improvement Center. In May 1983, excavators uncovered buried drums containing unknown liquids and sludges. Sampling indicated the drums were contaminated with high concentrations of lead and chromium. Trace levels of arsenic, the pesticide DDT and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were also identified. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program�s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2005.
