Susan Bates, a 17 acre site in Chester, CT, produced knitting needles and other sewing hardware. Manufacturing operations generated electroplating wastes. Sludge from these wastes were stored in an on-site lagoon which was closed as a landfill in the 1980s. Groundwater at the site is contaminated by 1,1,1-Trichloroethane and its degradation products). Investigation and remediation is being conducted under the CTDEEP Property Transfer Act Program. A vacuum extraction system was installed to remediate the plume source area and a limited pump and treat system was installed to reduce contaminant concentrations in the plume which flows from this source area. No public involvement has been conducted beyond coordination work to secure sampling of adjacent private drinking water wells and other off-site sampling.
