Whirlpool issues first annual report on Fort Smith pollution cleanup Fort Smith City Wire (AR) Staff January 16, 2014Whirlpool on Thursday (Jan. 16) released its annual report detailing the early stages of the cleanup trichloroethylene (TCE) at its former manufacturing facility on the south side of Fort Smith. TCE, a known carcinogen, had been used as a degreasing agent at the facility until the 1980s.
The annual report is the first released by the company as required by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), which made it part of its final Remedial Action Decision Document (RADD) for Corrective Action. The RADD dictates how Whirlpool will cleanup pollution not just at its former manufacturing facility, but also in areas including a neighborhood that lie above a plume of TCE that leaked north of the facility.
