Background

The 18-acre Prestolite Battery Division site is located in Knox County, Indiana. The Prestolite Battery facility operated on site from 1945 to 1985. Plant operations contaminated air, groundwater, soils and surface water with lead and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, site cleanup is ongoing.
