The 325-acre National Presto Industries site is a former munitions and metal-working facility in Eau Claire, Chippewa County, Wisconsin, adjacent to the town of Hallie. The site overlies a buried pre-glacial valley that serves as a primary source of drinking water. Initially NPI manufactured cookware and consumer products, and generated waste streams consisting of metals, oils, grease, and spent solvents during operations. Also, beginning in 1951, artillery shell fuses and aircraft parts were produced by NPI under military contracts. Metal projectiles production began in 1954 under separate contracts.
