The 2-acre Better Brite Plating Chrome and Zinc site is composed of two plating facilities in De Pere, Brown County, Wisconsin. The site includes the 1.5-acre Chrome Shop and the 0.5-acre Zinc Shop. Land use in the area is predominantly residential and commercial, with a wetlands located approximately one-quarter mile from the site. The estimated 15,000 area residents use the municipal wells drawing from the deep aquifer as a drinking water supply. The Zinc Shop has a long history of improper operational procedures and spills into the surrounding soil. The selected remedial action for this interim remedy includes continuing and expanding the current operation of the ground water extraction system and pretreatment facility, which will include pretreatment of the additional water collected by the surface water and ground water collection systems, and the Chrome and Zinc shops, with discharge to the De Pere wastewater system.
