Superfund Site Profile
The Chemical Recovery Systems (CRS) site is a 2.5-acre area located at 142 Locust Street in Lorain County, Elyria, Ohio. Operating from 1974 until 1981, CRS received used organic solvents from various industries, distilled the solvents on site and sold the reclaimed solvents back to the industries. Solvents were transported to and from the site in 55-gallon drums or by tanker truck. Cleanup is ongoing. The site is not listed on the National Priorities List (NPL) but is considered to be an NPL-caliber site and is being addressed through the Superfund Alternative Approach.
