CHICAGO (December 15, 2015) – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today started an emergency response action to clean up the vacant Williamson Polishing & Plating building in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood of Indianapolis, Ind.

EPA will identify hazards at the site, dismantle and decontaminate equipment and other building components, and dispose of hazardous substances at a licensed facility. EPA anticipates that work will be completed by spring, 2017.

Williamson Polishing & Plating began operating in 1937, polishing and electroplating brass, cadmium, copper, chrome, and other metals for its customers. The 14,600-square-foot building with plating process equipment and waste was abandoned in June 2016.
