Background

The Lane Plating Works, Inc. site is a former electroplating facility located at 5322 Bonnie View Road, approximately five miles south of downtown Dallas, Dallas County, Texas. The site is a former electroplating facility that primarily conducted hard chromium and cadmium plating for more than 90 years. Electroplating was performed manually. Due to violations, investigations and bankruptcy filing, the facility shut down. Investigations by the EPA and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) found on-site soils and shallow ground water contaminated with plating wastes.

What Has Been Done to Clean Up the Site?

The TCEQ referred the site to the EPA due to the need for long-term remedial action to clean up contaminated soils, ground water and surface water, and to prevent additional contaminant releases from the site. Other federal and state cleanup programs were evaluated, but are not viable at this time. The EPA received a letter of support for placing this site on the NPL from the state of Texas.

What Is the Current Site Status?

Large volumes of liquid plating wastes were stored at the site as recently as October 2016. In November and December 2015, the TCEQ removed cyanide waste and secured chromic acid sludge. In November 2016, the EPA removed all solid and liquid hazardous wastes.
