Greilickville, Michigan

Federal Register Notice:  September 08, 1983

Conditions at listing (December 1982): Grand Traverse Overall Supply Site covers 1 acre in Greilickville, Leelanau County, Michigan. Perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE) were identified in nearby shallow private wells serving residences and a school. PCE was also found in soils and water of an on-site seepage lagoon, and in soil samples from inside and outside a dry well on the site. In 1977, cooling water discharged to Cedar Lake Outlet also contained TCE. Later, process and cooling waters were discharged to sanitary sewers. The wet well was excavated and new wells constructed for the school and residences with contaminated wells.

Status (July 1983): Conditions at this site are currently being addressed through an enforcement action against parties responsible for wastes at the site.
