Background

The Lorentz Barrel & Drum Co. site is located at the intersection of Alma Avenue and 10th Street in San Jose, California. A waste drum reconditioning and recycling facility operated on site from 1947 to 1987. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Most of the site’s cleanup has been completed. Site investigations and cleanup planning for a remaining source area of contamination are ongoing.
