Wabash Environmental Technologies (WET). operated a used oil processing facility on First Street from 2001 to 2004. In December 2004, Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM)ordered the business to cease operations after finding serious environmental violations. The site also contains a wastewater treatment facility.
In 2005, EPA and IDEM had to remove 220,000 gallons of liquid from the treatment facility that was threatening to overflow its storage tanks after heavy rains.
The property is located in a mixed industrial, commercial and residential area. An apartment complex sits 200 feet away and a park, a day care center and four churches are also nearby.
IDEM asked EPA to use its authority under the federal Superfund law to step in and remove the health threat posed by the improperly contained chemicals.
