Superfund Site: FIVE POINTS PCE PLUME
WOODS CROSS/BOUNTIFUL, UT

Superfund Site Profile

SITE BACKGROUND

The Five Points PCE Plume site is located in the Salt Lake Valley in the cities of Woods Cross City, Bountiful and North Salt Lake City in Davis County, Utah. The site consists of a groundwater plume of tetrachloroethylene (PCE), a chemical used as a dry cleaning agent or metal degreaser. Although the plume begins in Bountiful, it travels west-southwest into Woods Cross City, affecting the city’s municipal well system. Most of the mile-long plume underlies Woods Cross City and North Salt Lake City. The most likely source of this contamination is a dry cleaning facility in Bountiful. Investigation and cleanup of the site is ongoing.
