The -acre Free Radiator Site is located at 12316 Greenville Highway in Lyman. A refurbishing shop has operated at the site since 1947. Waste radiator fluid was flushed and drained into a 15 foot sump located behind the shop. The site consists of lead contamination that appears to remain only in the area of the berm and throughout visible drainage areas, which include areas to the east and west sides of the shop.
