The 325-acre National Presto Industries site is a former munitions and metal-working facility in Eau Claire, Chippewa County, Wisconsin, adjacent to the town of Hallie. From 1942 until 1945, the site was government-owned, contractor-operated, and produced gunpowder and small arms. From 1945 to 1980, the site was owned by National Presto, which generated waste streams consisting of metals, oils, grease, and spent solvents. Also, beginning in 1951, artillery shell fuses, aircraft parts, and metal projectiles were produced by NPI under a military contract. The Record of Decision (ROD) provides for a permanent alternate water supply to address the principal threat posed by the ground water contamination at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water include VOCs such as PCE and TCE.
