Background

The 24-acre McGraw Edison Corporation site is located in Calhoun County, Michigan. The company made air conditioners, humidifiers and similar equipment from 1958 until 1980. From 1970 to 1980, the company spread about 15,000 gallons of "still-bottoms" (an oil waste) on the site's dirt roads to control dust. The oil waste contained trichloroethylene (TCE), which contaminated two on-site water supply wells and 45 nearby residential wells. Following cleanup of contaminated soils, operation and maintenance activities for long-term groundwater cleanup are ongoing.
