The 2.95-acre Hydro-Flex site, located in Topeka, Kansas, was used for manufacturing flexible copper couplings. From the 1970's to the 1980's, Hydro-Flex discharged an average of 90 gallons per day of process wastewater into an onsite wastewater disposal system consisting of a septic tank with three concrete manholes and a soil absorption field. In 1981, the onsite wastewater disposal ceased and was subsequently taken out of operation when Hydro-Flex was connected to the Topeka sewer system. A PA/SI performed by the state identified sludge and ground water contaminated with chromium and copper. The ROD addresses onsite sludge and ground water. EPA investigations have shown that levels of chromium and copper in the soil are not above naturally occurring levels and, therefore, no longer pose a health threat under current or likely land use conditions. Therefore, there are no contaminants of concern affecting this site.
