The Sol Lynn site, also known as Industrial Transformers site, is located in Houston, Texas. During the fall of 1971, the City of Houston Water Pollution Control Division noted that workers at Industrial Transformers poured oil out of electrical transformers onto the ground during transformer dismantling. In 1981, strong odors originated from the site. Upon inspection, approximately 75 drums were found scattered about the property. Most were labeled as trichloroethylene, were empty and had puncture holes. A technical assessment of the site in 1986 indicated the presence of PCB contamination confined to the top two feet of soil. The selected remedial actions for this site are delineated. The estimated present worth cost for the remedial action is $2,200,000.
