Background

The Pools Prairie Site is located near Neosho, Missouri. Military and private operations contaminated groundwater in the area with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including trichloroethylene (TCE), by placing waste solvent into unlined lagoons, the leaking of solvent from manmade structures and the use of solvent for weed control.

Soil cleanup, groundwater investigations and monitoring are ongoing.
