The 15-acre Aidex Corporation site is located in rural Mineola, Iowa, about seven miles south-southwest of Council Bluffs.  Aidex Corporation operated a pesticide formulation facility at the site from 1974 until 1980. The soil and groundwater at the site was contaminated with a variety of pesticide compounds. Approximately 600 people lived within three miles of the rural site. A shallow aquifer that underlies the site was contaminated, and 42 shallow domestic water wells were located within a two-mile radius of the site.
