Auto Ion Chemicals site is a former plating waste treatment and disposal facility occupying approximately 1.5 acres of vacant, fenced land in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Ground water at the site is not currently used as a source of drinking water. From 1964 to 1973 the facility received chrome and cyanide plating waste. Heavy metals were precipitated from the plating waste and deposited in an onsite lagoon, and wastewater was discharged to the sanitary sewer. Leaks and spills from storage tanks, lagoon seepage, and other site activities resulted in soil contamination. In 1983 EPA conducted an emergency surface removal and, in 1986, they demolished the site structures which housed tanks and storage facilities. The selected remedial action for this site includes excavation and offsite stabilization of approximately 7,200 cubic yards of contaminated soil; offsite disposal of treated soil in an approved land disposal area.
