The Site consists of a PCE contaminant plume in shallow groundwater, extending east-northeast from the source area, under a residential neighborhood, into downtown Billings, MT. The contaminant plume likely results from historic PCE (a dense, non-aqueous phase liquid or ‘DNAPL’) releases from the old dry cleaning facility The contaminant plume (defined by the 100 ug/l PCE isopleth), extends approximately 8,000 feet from the source area to the distal end, spreads, in one area, to a width of 1,000 feet, and underlies 298 residential, 8 condominium, and 179 commercial properties. Depth to groundwater is approximately 12-14 feet.
