Background

The 15-acre Cam-Or Inc. site is located near Westville in LaPorte County, Indiana. The Westville Oil Division of Cam-Or collected, stored and re-refined waste oil on site from 1934 until 1987. The waste oil was re-refined for use in automotive- and industrial-grade lubricating oil blends. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, cleanup planning is ongoing.
