The site operated as a cotton and woolen mill throughout the early 20th century. Beginning in 1948, the site was operated by Bell Aircraft and, subsequently, General Electric for the manufacturing of military armaments. In 1997, General Dynamics Corporation purchased the site and operated it as a military armament technology center. A hazardous waste storage area was maintained for the waste solvents and acids generated on site. General Dynamics ceased operating on the property in 2010.
This approximately 12 acre facility is located in a commercial area of Burlington, VT. According to the US Geological Survey's National Hydrography Dataset, this facility is located in the Lake Champlain watershed and the nearest fresh surface water body is located on or immediately adjacent to the property. Geology in this area has been observed to be dominated by quartzite and dolostone (dolomite) formations.
Institutional and Engineering Controls help ensure human exposure and groundwater migration are under control at a cleanup facility. Where control types have been reported by states and EPA in EPA’s RCRAInfo, they are shown below. Not all control types are needed at all facilities, and some facilities do not require any controls. Where there are blanks, the control types may not be needed, may not be in place, or may not be reported in RCRAInfo.
