Spellman Engineering operated without the benefit of today’s understanding of environmental contaminants or environmental rules and regulations. As a result, materials were discarded in ways that would not meet today’s environmental standards.
While in operation, Spellman Engineering would dispose of spent solvents, on the southern portion of the property, while cleaning industrial parts. This process created a number of by-products and waste material that were released into the soil and lower aquifer groundwater. The current level of by-products measured in the groundwater are well deeper than 30 feet below land surface and pose no threat to people working and living near the site.
