GE To Treat Ground Water
September 1, 2001
The EPA has ordered the General Electric Co., based in Fairfield, Conn., to clean up soil and ground water contamination at the Fletcher's Paint Works Superfund site in Milford, N.H. Fletcher's Paint Works manufactured and sold water-based latex paints and organic chemical-based solvent paints from 1949 to 1991. Contaminant releases to the environment occurred as a result of storage of hazardous substances on the properties. The Fletcher's Paint site was placed on EPA's National Priorities list in 1989, making it eligible for federal action to address longer-term environmental impacts under the Superfund program.
