The Tuchman Cleaners Site is located at 4401 N. Keystone Avenue in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana, 46205. The Site is located in an area that is commercial and residential. Approximately 10,000 people live within one mile of the Site. The Fall Creek well field is less than ¼ mile from the Site. Fall Creek, a major tributary to the White River, is located approximately 500 feet south of the Site.
Tuchman Cleaners operated as a dry cleaner at the Keystone facility beginning in 1953 until 2008 when the parent company declared bankruptcy. Prior to the construction of the dry cleaning facility, the property was an empty lot. The Site is currently vacant.
In 2002, the URS Corporation (URS) conducted a site assessment and began remediation at Tuchman Cleaners for the former owner. URS's historical data documented volatile organic compound (VOC) contamination on Site, including the chlorinated solvents tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE), in soil and groundwater. PCE was detected in near-surface soil (1 foot below ground surface (bgs)) at a maximum concentration of 2,400 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) (Administrative Record [AR] No. 6).

Beginning in September 2012, EPA will conduct a time-critical removal action that includes removing soil that poses a direct contact threat; backfilling excavated areas; conducting vapor intrusion assessment and mitigation; and transportation and disposal off-site of hazardous substances, pollutants and contaminants.
