Company to monitor for chemical in neighborhoodSpringfield manufacturer says it will cleanup any contamination found from decades-old spill, safety No. 1 priority.
By Matt Sanctis Dayton Daily News (OH) May 11, 2014A Springfield manufacturing firm will monitor groundwater and collect air samples to determine if a more than 25-year-old chemical spill has migrated from its site to nearby homes as part of an extensive cleanup.
Cascade, which has about 170 employees, is working with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to clean its site of trichloroethylene - often called TCE - a chemical typically used to clean and degrease metal. A spill of the chemical occurred there in 1988 and since then the company has monitored and treated groundwater on its site.
But it recently discovered that trace amounts of the chemical from that leak may be slowly migrating outside of its property. So the company will install additional monitoring wells throughout the neighborhood north and west of its 2501 Sheridan Ave. facility to track the chemical and perform any necessary cleanups of soil, groundwater and vapors.
