Abstract:  SITE HISTORY/DESCRIPTION: The 3.9-acre Grand Traverse Overall Supply (GTOS) site is an active commercial laundering facility in Greilickville, Leelanau County, Michigan. Land use in the area is residential, with an elementary school directly east of the site. The site overlies both an unconfined aquifer and a semi-confined aquifer. Surface water in the area includes Cedar Creek, which is dammed and discharges to the unconfined aquifer located upstream of the dam, and ground water discharges into the creek downstream of the dam. From 1953 to 1977, the GTOS facility discharged laundry and process wastes from dry cleaning operations onsite to seepage lagoons and a dry-well. After 1977 laundry and process wastes were diverted to the sanitary sewer system. From 1968 to 1978, cooling water used in onsite dry cleaning operations was discharged to Cedar Creek. In 1978, the state detected VOCs, including PCE, TCE, and 1,2 DCE, in the water supply of the adjacent elementary school and condemned the well. Additional well sampling by the state determined that, as a result of disposal operations, the GTOS site was the likely source of the contaminants. From 1978 to 1980, the state required GTOS to conduct removal actions, which included replacing the contaminated drinking water wells and excavating the onsite dry well and adjacent contaminated soil, followed by offsite disposal of excavated materials; filling three of the four seepage lagoons with gravel, followed by paving; backfilling the remaining lagoon and revegetating the area. In 1978, dry cleaning operations were discontinued, but the GTOS site remains active and continues to discharge wastes into the sanitary sewer system. This ROD addresses the potential risks posed by onsite ground water. As a result of previous removal actions, organic compounds present in low levels in soil, and organic and inorganic compounds present in ground water no longer pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment; therefore, there are no contaminants of concern affecting this site. PERFORMANCE STANDARDS OR GOALS: Not applicable. INSTITUTIONAL CONTROLS: Not applicable.
Remedy:  SELECTED REMEDIAL ACTION: The selected remedial action for this site is the no action; however, ground water monitoring for inorganics will continue for 1 year. EPA has determined that conditions at the site due to contamination by organic compounds pose no current or potential threat to human health or the environment. There are no costs associated with this no action remedy.
