Description
[Back to Top]

Timex Corp., Middlebury, CT. Beginning in the 1940s, Timex Corp. operated a gyroscope and watch manufacturing facility, which included metal finishing, electroplating, and vapor degreasing, on the 59 acre site. Wastes generated included process wastewater (which contained acids, alkaline cleaners, and metals), solvents, oils, and flammable liquids. The site was sold in 1983. Timex signed a consent order with the CTDEP in April 1994 and has completed an RFI and recently submitted a Corrective Measures Study. Timex has conducted a number of remedial activities, including excavation and backfilling of the former sludge drying beds and wastewater lagoons, construction of a public water supply to nearby residents and construction and operation of a groundwater pump and treat system under CTDEP oversight.
