Grenada Manufacturing, LLC, Facility Cleanup and Environmental Study in Grenada, MS

An environmental study is underway in and around Eastern Heights in Grenada, MS, to evaluate whether contamination may be traveling into the community from the former Grenada Manufacturing, LLC, facility (Facility, commonly known as Grenada Stamping and currently operated by Ice Industries) or any other sources. EPA became aware of the potential for trichloroethene (TCE) contamination while overseeing a cleanup of the Facility under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) program.

This study is part of a precautionary approach to protect public health and the environment. Based on results received to date, EPA has determined that there is no immediate threat to public health in the Eastern Heights neighborhood due to TCE. 

EPA also directed that an air study be conducted inside the Facility’s main plant building.  Elevated levels of TCE were detected in the Facility’s indoor air, as well as areas beneath the concrete floor. Based on results received to date for the Facility, EPA has directed Ice Industries to notify workers of the elevated TCE concentrations and implement immediate actions at the Facility to reduce worker exposure.
