MOBERLY - Contaminants stemming from an Orscheln facility may be in Moberly's air and sewers, and the City Council voted Monday to allow the state's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to investigate.

The council's agenda stated, "Industrial operations at the Orbco facility in Moberly have previously been identified as the source of TCE pollutants."

TCE, also known as trichloroethylene, is a common compound used by dry cleaners and refrigerant manufacturing facilities, according to the EPA's website.

The Orbco facility on North Morley Street, which is owned by Orscheln Management Co., makes materials for vehicle maintenance, such as control cables, parking brake systems and dipstick assembles.
