The Arcanum Iron and Metal (AIM) site is a 4.5 acre site located in Twin Township, Darke County, Ohio, just southeast of the city of Arcanum and 25 miles northwest of Dayton. The AIM site operated as a lead battery reprocessing facility from the early 1960s until 1982. During this operation, battery casings were split to extract lead cores for smelting. Reprocessing of the plastic and black rubber battery casings generated lead oxide sludge and lead particulates which collected on the ground surface and surface ponds onsite. The primary contaminants of concern are antimony and arsenic leading the contaminants of secondary concern.
