The H. Brown Company, Inc., site is a former landfill and battery reclamation facility in Walker, Kent County, Michigan. Before 1961, the site was an uncontrolled dump that received unknown types and quantities of waste. From 1961 to 1982, the owner reclaimed lead from wet-cell batteries. The ROD addresses the final remedy for the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, debris (battery casings), ground water, surface water, and air are VOCs, including benzene, toluene, and xylenes; other organics, including PAHs, PCBs, pesticides, and phenols; and metals, including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
