The Site is 1.71 acres and consists of an inactive/abandoned one story manufacturing building and a parking lot. It is located in an industrial park. The facility previously processed dies and metal tools (drill bits). It has been closed for approximately two years and it is currently up for sale. There are approximately 200-55 gallon drums staged on the parking lot and on the loading dock area. Inside the building are lathes, drills and other machines with drums, vats and various other containers that were used during the manufacturing process. The drums, vats, and other containers contain chemicals (product and/or wastes) from the original manufacturing process.

Access to the drums is uncontrolled. In addition, the building's fire suppression system is not in operation because the utilities have been shutoff due to non payment.

There are approximately 4,036 residences within a one mile radius of the Site, with the closest being approximately .11 miles away. According to the EPA Region 1 Environmental Justice Mapping Tool, the Site is not in an environmental justice area.

Sampling results by the EPA and the CTDEP, reveal that the materials currently in the drums and other containers exhibit the CFR 40 Subpart C- Characteristics of Hazardous Waste, 261.21 characteristics of ignitability, 261.22 characteristic of corrosivity, and 261.24 characteristic of toxicity. In addition the samples collected from the drums, revealed the presence of chromium at 21,000 parts per million (ppm), arsenic at 40 ppm, and cyanide at 77,000 ppm. These levels exceed the CTDEP’s, Residential and Industrial/Commercial Direct Exposure Criteria for soil.

The PA/SI was concluded and based on Site conditions and preliminary analytical results, a time critical removal action was recommended in a closure memorandum dated June 17, 2008. The request for a Removal Action Memorandum was signed by the EPA Region 1 OSRR Director on July 14, 2008.
