The Fisher Calo Chem site is in LaPorte County, Indiana. The site is comprised of the 33-acre One-Line Road facility, the 340-acre Two-Line Road facility, and the 170-acre Space Leasing facility. Surrounding the site are woodlands, grasslands, wetlands, and a wildlife area. Site contamination at all three facilities is the result of the production and distribution of industrial chemicals, and reclamation of waste paint and metal finishing solvents. In 1982, EPA initiated site investigations that revealed elevated levels of organic compounds in ground water, heavy metals in the soil, and evidence of additional buried drums. The Record of Decision addresses the remaining contaminated areas including the soil, waste material and structures at the site, and contaminated ground water in aquifers underlying the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are VOCs including TCE, toluene, xylenes; other organics including PAHs and PCBs; and asbestos.
