The Textileather Corporation (“Textileather”) owns a facility which manufactured vinyl products for the auto and industry until 2009.  The property is located in the northeast side of Toledo, Ohio, surrounded by industrial, commercial, and residential areas.  The approximate 47-acre site is currently non-operational and secured by a fence and guards. 

The property had been used for various manufacturing purposes since 1920.  While operational, hazardous waste and hazardous constituents were released into the environment Including include solvents, phthalates, and PCBs.  The Corrective Action program is overseeing the investigation and remediation of the releases by Textileather under an Administrative Order on Consent. 

The owner remediated significant historical PCB releases under TSCA in the 1990’s.  Additionally, PCBs and other contamination in the nearby Ottawa River (from multiple sources) were remediated under the Great Lakes Legacy Act in 2010.  The Ottawa is a tributary to the Maumee River which is a Great Lakes Area of Concern. 

The common term for the program responsible for overseeing the remediation is the Corrective Action program. An Administrative Order on Consent requiring investigation and remediation of the site by Textileather was signed by the owner and EPA in September 2009.
