Site History and Background:
Eagle Industries inspected and repair aircraft oxygen and fire extinguisher systems for third party customers from 1990 through 2010s. A 2003 DEQ inspection found the company dumping trichloroethylene (TCE) on the ground. DEQ worked with the facility to stop the practice and assess the environmental damage. Eagle entered into a legal consent order with DEQ pledging to investigate the nature and extent of the ground water pollution. The company did not have the financial resources to fulfill its responsibilities. The facility appears to be inactive at this time.
The Eagle Industries site has undergone limited cleanup activity. In 2006, following some remedial investigation, approximately 40 cubic yards of soil was removed from the site. Several monitoring wells have been installed in the area to investigate ground water contamination. On-site soil is believed to be a continuing source of contaminant release into the ground water.
The site was added to the National Priorities List on January 18, 2018. A Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) is currently being conducted at the site. The RI/FS phase of the process determines the nature and extent of contamination at the site, tests whether certain technologies are capable of treating the contamination, and evaluates the cost and performance of technologies that could be used to clean up the site.
