Superfund Site: ENVIROCHEM CORP.

Superfund Site Profile


The 6-acre Envirochem Corporation site is located west of Northside Sanitary Landfill and north of Zionsville in Boone County, Indiana. A facility processed and reclaimed solvents on site from 1977 to 1982. The facility received wastes such as resins, paint sludges, waste oils and flammable solvents and stored them on site in drums and storage tanks. On-site accumulation and unauthorized discharge of contaminated stormwater, poor management of drum inventory, unapproved burning of chlorinated hydrocarbons and other solvents, and several spills contaminated soils and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, the site’s long-term cleanup is ongoing.
