Case Description

The Great Lakes Asphalt Facility Is located in Boone County, Indiana in an agricultural/residential area. In 1972 and 1982, the facility leased the use of several tanks to the operators of the Enviro-Chem Site for the storage of “synthetic fuel”. On May 10, 1989, the Emergency Response Branch of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management was notified of a release at the Facility. The release flowed north to contaminate the soil, a drainage system and a waterway. The discharge covered a 1.5 mile area and entered Eagle Creek. Approximately 80,000 gallons of liquid material containing elevated levels of volatile organic compounds such as toluene, xylene, methyl isobutyl ketone, ethylbenzene, trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene and high levels of metals such as lead, zinc, copper and chromium have been released into the environment at or from the Facility.
