The six-acre U.S. Aviex site is located in the City of Niles, Howard Township, Cass County, Michigan. Surface runoff from the site and surrounding areas flows toward Bome-Huntly Drain, a tributary of St. Joseph River, and ultimately Lake Michigan. U.S. Aviex produced non-lubricating automotive fluids from the early 1960s until 1978. During operations at the plant, chlorinated hydrocarbons, including trichloroethane (TCA), were released into the vadose zone south of the process room. The subsurface soil still contains significant quantities of TCA, TCE, and PCE. The selected remedial action for this site includes: soil flushing of approximately 11,500 cu yd of contaminated onsite soil; and collection of onsite and offsite ground water and fluids from the soil flushing process with treatment onsite by air stripping, and discharge to surface water.
