The site consists of three non-contiguous parcels where inactive salvage yard operations were the primary land use. The property had abandoned containers, debris mixed with PCBs, lead, asbestos, and mercury and a leaking tank car containing PCB oil. The Michigan
Department of Natural Resources Lake Linden Trail crosses each of the
EPA completed the cleanup in early October 2021. EPA removed 2,955 tons of lead, arsenic, and PCB contaminated soil and
11 drums of PCB capacitors and batteries. The cleanup work will protect Portage
Canal and the rails-to-trails Lake Linden Route used by bikers, joggers, and
the local track team.
