Background

The 120-acre Reilly Tar & Chemical Corporation site is located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Since the early 1950s, Reilly has operated a specialty chemical plant on the northern part of the site property. Until 1972, a coal-tar refining and wood treatment facility, using creosote, also operated on site. A trench, a landfill and several pits used to dispose of wastes are located on site. A lime pond received boiler cooling water. The site is fenced. Following cleanup, groundwater treatment is ongoing.
