The Admiral Home Appliances site is located adjacent to Dixie-Narco Boulevard in Williston. The company previously manufactured refrigerators and freezers at its manufacturing facility which is currently operated by Dixie Narco. Industrial wastewater from the facility=s manufacturing operation was piped to a former domestic wastewater plant that discharged into a wetland area, which flowed into Willis Mill Pond. Since 1982, industrial wastewater from the manufacturing facility has been treated by the Williston Municipal Wastewater System.
