The 48-acre Main Street Well Field (MSWF) site is in Elkhart, Elkhart County, Indiana. The well field provides the primary water supply for the 44,000 city residents. Adjacent to the site are several industrial properties, Excel and Durakool to the east; Elkhart Products to the west that used TCE and other organic solvents as part of their operations. During routine sampling in 1981, EPA identified TCE contamination in onsite wells. Sampling wells were installed on the Excel and Durakool properties, and the results of the testing indicated these industries were the likely sources of contamination. The ROD addresses management of migration of the western contaminant plume, as well as source control on the east side of the well field. The selected remedial action for the site includes treating 22,000 cubic feet of contaminated soil by in-situ vacuum extraction; removing the soil containing the 60 cubic yards of soil containing the paint layer, followed by offsite incineration or suitable treatment etc.
