Ball & Socket (B&S), Cheshire, CT, manufactured metallic buttons and fasteners from the 1850s until September 1994. On-site operations included metal stamping of brass and carbon steel, tumbling, electroplating, lacquering, and metal cleaning. The facility has implemented several Interim Corrective Measures ("ICMs"), including the closure of former electroplating sludge lagoons and the construction and operation of a groundwater pump and treat system to remediate contaminated groundwater, aimed at alleviating threats to health or the environment caused by on-site contamination. In 1997 EPA conducted an evaluation that determined that there currently existed unacceptable exposures to humans from site contaminants in groundwater, soils, surface water, etc. under current site uses.
