Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Talon Property, Meadville, Pennsylvania
Contaminated Groundwater Investigation in Meadville Moves into Next Phase

DEP Focusing on Groundwater Moving Off Talon Property

Gant Daily (PA)
December 9, 2008

MEADVILLE - The Department of Environmental Protection will soon begin the next phase of work to determine the path of contaminated groundwater migrating from the former Talon Plant #7 in Meadville, Crawford County.

Within the next few weeks, DEP contractors will be installing monitoring wells on property across the road from the old Talon property at 1305 South Main St. Wells will be on property where Channellock, Inc. and Little Champs Child Development Center are located.

The former Talon property is now being developed by Vantage Holding Co. LLC and is safe for current and future non-residential use. However, in its previous life as a facility where Talon, Inc. produced zippers from 1932 until 1994, industrial activity released trichloroethylene (TCE) and other pollutants, contaminating the groundwater beneath the property.
