The 45-acre Linemaster Switch Corp. site is located in Woodstock, Connecticut. A facility on site has made electrical and pneumatic foot switches and wiring harnesses since 1952. Operations involve the use of trichloroethylene (TCE), paint and thinners that resulted in groundwater, sediment, surface water and soil contamination at the site. Cleanup activities included the installation of soil and groundwater treatment systems.
