Eagle Industries is a 2.271 acre property located at 10901 S.E. 29th Street in Midwest City. Eagle Industries inspected and repaired aircraft oxygen and fire extinguisher systems for third party customers from 1990 through 2010s. Onsite soil and ground water contamination resulted from improper handling practices of the chemical trichloroethylene (TCE). In January 2018, Eagle Industries was listed on the National Priorities List to address the contamination. Superfund is the federal government’s program to clean up the nation’s uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
