Northernaire Plating is the site of a former electroplating facility located at 1002 Sixth Street in Cadillac, Wexford County, Michigan. Electroplating operations were conducted at the 12.75 acre site from 1971 to 1981. Waste contaminants from electroplating commonly include copper, nickel, chromium, zinc, lead, tin and cadmium, as well as metal complexing agents. In 1978, two domestic wells were found to be contaminated with hexavalent chromium. In addition, process waste waters containing cadmium and chromium were discharged into the municipal sewer system. A private sewer line permitted exfiltration of these waste waters through poorly sealed joints. A drywell in the sewer line at the facility allowed plant effluent to be discharged directly to the highly permeable unsaturated soil. This ROD is a source control remedial action that is included.
