Item or Series Title Adams Plating EPA Superfund Site
Catalog Number 1989-04-001
Description This collection contains reports, updates, correspondence, and CD-ROMs of various data files related to the Adams Plating EPA Superfund Cleanup Site. The materials have been deposited over time at the Lansing Public Library (later CADL) by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for access by the public.

Adams Plating was established in about 1965 at 521 Rosemary Street on the west side of Lansing, in Lansing Township, Ingham County, Michigan. The company was located on a site of approximately one acre in a mixed commercial/residential area, and prior to the plating business, the site was used by a dry cleaning service. The plating operations primarily consisted of chrome, nickel, and copper electroplating. Wastewater originally was discharged to an old clay tile drain system next to the building; beginning in 1980 it was pretreated and discharged to the sanitary sewer.

The old clay tile drain system ruptured in July of 1980 and a nearby house (510 N. Grace St.) began having problems with green water in the basement. Analyses of the water showed it to contain high levels of chromium, and a drain was installed to send water to the Adams pretreatment system. By 1986 local and state authorities had involved the U.S. EPA for a site inspection. It was placed on the National Priorities List in 1988.

Cleanup and site monitoring have continued since those times, and the reports and documents in this collection are a record of that work. The Forest Parke Library and Archives at CADL makes these materials available to the public on behalf of the U.S. EPA and/or the State of Michigan, but the ultimate responsibility for these records lies with the EPA and the State.
