Grand Rapids Vapor Intrusion


EPA is responding to two vapor intrusion sites in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This is one of two vapor intrusion sites EPA has been asked to investigate in Grand Rapids this month. At the first site, EPA is addressing high levels of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) from a former dry cleaner. The Trex site addresses trichloroethylene (TCE) from the former Detrex Corporation where MDEQ has overseen a voluntary, ongoing corrective action cleanup since the facility’s closure in the 1990s.
