Item or Series Title Motor Wheel EPA Superfund Site
Catalog Number 1987-06-001
Description This collection contains reports, updates, correspondence, and CD-ROMs of various data files related to the Motor Wheel 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.

Motor Wheel Corporation was formed in 1920 following the merger of the Prudden Wheel Company and Gier Pressed Steel and Auto Wheel. By 1934, Motor Wheel controlled approximately a third of all wheel production in the United States. Motor Wheel was purchased by Goodyear Tire in 1964, and it closed in 1975. (Information from MSU Archives Motor Wheel Collection finding aid.)

The 24-acre Motor Wheel site is located at 725 West Saginaw Street in Lansing Township, extending to the north. Parts of the property were used for disposal of paints, solvents, and other wastes generated in the manufacture of wheels for the automotive industry, from about 1938 to 1978. Several site cleanup actions took place beginning in 1970, including storage tank removal and relocation of wastes off-site.

In 1986 it was placed on the National Priorities List (NPL) and work was carried out on the Remedial Investigation, Feasibility Study, and Proposed Plan for the rest of the 1980s. Cleanup and monitoring are ongoing.

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.
