Background

The Lake Calumet Cluster site is a group of land and waste storage and disposal facilities in southeastern Chicago. The site covers 87 acres. Facility operations contaminated soil, sediment and groundwater with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), pesticides and metals. Following initial investigations, the site’s groundwater remedy is under development. Remaining activities for soil cleanup – finishing construction of a landfill cap – will be coordinated with the groundwater remedy.
