Cleanup of the ESI Environmental Inc. site was recently completed by a group of companies considered potentially responsible for the contamination. The companies were doing the cleanup in response to a legal agreement they signed in 2011. On Oct. 9, 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a notice of completion letter to the companies stating that all of the requirements listed in the agreement had been met.
ESI was a commercial used oil and wastewater treatment facility that filed for bankruptcy on Oct. 1, 2010. EPA started a cleanup of the facility in October 2010. In April 2011, the group of companies, called a PRP group, took over the cleanup in response to the legal agreement.
