Ecology invites the public to comment on a Remedial Investigation (RI) and Feasibility Study (FS) for the Park Laundry site in Ridgefield. The purpose of the RI/FS was to define the full nature and extent of contamination, evaluate a range of cleanup options, and provide a cleanup recommendation.
The RI/FS were completed by the property owners, Union Ridge Investment Co., as required by a legal agreement (Agreed Order DE 6829).
The Park Laundry property was a laundry and a dry cleaners from about 1965 to 1977. During that time, chlorinated solvents such as tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE) were released to the environment. Chlorinated solvents are suspected to cause cancer in humans.
