The 3-acre Pristine, Inc. site is located in Reading, Ohio. A former liquid waste disposal facility operated on site from 1974 to 1981. Prior to this, the facility was used to make sulfuric acid. The owners obtained a permit in 1977 to convert the facility into a hazardous waste incinerator. Due to numerous permit violations, Ohio EPA closed the facility in 1981. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Cleanup is ongoing.
