Whyco Chromium, a seven acre site in Thomaston, is a metal plating facility, generates electroplating wastes and formerly operated a hazardous waste lagoon which was closed in the 1980s. Wastes from the lagoon are now in an on-site landfill. Some investigation work was conducted under a facility lead agreement with EPA and the site is now under the CTDEEP Property Transfer Act Program. The area around the site is undeveloped and no public involvement activities have been conducted to date.
