The Precision Plating site is located in Vernon, Connecticut. A chromium plating company formerly known as the Precision Plating Corp. is one of several tenants in a small industrial complex known as the Hillside Industrial Park. The company has been chrome plating various metal parts and fixtures on this 3-acre area since 1970. Wastes generated during the chrome plating process contaminated drinking water wells in the Hillside Industrial Park. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, site investigations and long-term cleanup planning are ongoing.
