Hedblum Industries site, an automotive parts manufacturing plant, is approximately one mile southeast of the town of Oscoda, in AuSable Township, Iosco County, Michigan. Between 1968 and 1972 the previous plant operators discharged cooling water, rinse water, and approximately 4,000 gallons of waste TCE onto the ground. In 1973 VOCs were detected in residential wells in the AuSable subdivision. Contaminated wells were replaced with deeper wells which by 1977 also showed traces of contamination. Subsequently, the Oscoda Township Municipal Supply System was extended to residents through the installation of a new water main. An underground storage tank containing TCE, TCA, and PCE was removed from the site in 1980. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene, toluene, xylenes, TCE, and PCE; and metals including lead.
