Another TCE contamination site believed likely in Camdenton

Lake News Onlin (MO)

A total of three former employees were interviewed to corroborate the claim of alleged dumping at the temporary location from 1972 to 1973, including a degreaser operator.

The alleged dumping of a chemical contaminant found in the Camdenton water supply in the late 1990s may have occurred at a temporary location used by a former manufacturer in the early 1970s.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Superfund Department and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) have been investigating reports of the alleged dumping of trichloroethylene (TCE) - a volatile organic compound that has been linked to kidney, liver and other cancers - at a building located 1225 U.S. Highway 54 within city limits.

The property currently occupied by the Laker Fishing Tackle Company reportedly served as a temporary operations facility for Dawson Metal Products after a fire occurred on July 10, 1972, at their main facility at 221 Sunset Drive.
