The 3.5-acre Carter Industrials site is a former scrap metal storage and salvage operation in Detroit, Michigan. From 1966 until 1986, the site was used as a scrap metal salvage and storage facility, changing ownership several times during the period. Items accepted for salvage included electrical capacitors and transformers. In 1986, the State identified elevated levels of PCBs in onsite soil, which was later confirmed by EPA investigations. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses remediation of remaining onsite and offsite source material. A subsequent ROD will address the need for remediation of contaminated sewer lines running from the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are organics including PCBs; and metals including arsenic, cadmium, and lead. The selected remedial action for the site is included.
