The IMC/Terre Haute site is located in southeastern Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana. A waste disposal area, encompassing approximately six acres, is located in the northeastern portion of the plant site. From 1946 to 1954 a small facility on a six-acre segment of the property manufactured, packaged, and warehoused technical-grade benzene hexachloride (BHC-tech). In 1980, approximately 28,500 cu yds of soil, rubble, piping and other debris were excavated and placed in a secure clay-capped mound to prevent offsite migration of BHC-tech. The cap system included a surface drainage collection system and soil gas venting. The selected remedial action for this site is no further action with a maintenance program.
