Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

The Ott/Story/Cordova Chemical Co. site is located in Muskegon, Michigan. Formerly, the site was an organic chemical production facility that operated under at least three owners from 1957 to 1985. The former production area is about 20 acres in size. Wastewater and production vessel residue disposal practices contaminated groundwater, soils and nearby Little Bear Creek and its unnamed tributary. About 10,000 drums of waste material, some of which contained phosgene gas, were also stockpiled on site. Following cleanup, operations and maintenance activities are ongoing.
