Site Summary:
Federal Register Notice:  February 21, 1990

Conditions at proposal (June 24, 1988): Jones Chemicals, Inc., has manufactured and distributed a variety of specialty chemicals at 100 Sunny Sol Boulevard in the Village of Caledonia, a moderately populated urban area of Livingston County, New York, since 1940. The 10-acre site is within 1,500 feet of the Village of Caledonia's well field.

During frequent loading of liquid chemicals, including tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, and chloroform into railroad cars, some apparently spilled. These chemicals were detected in three on-site wells in tests conducted in 1986 by the New York State Department of Health. Between 2,500 and 3,000 people obtain drinking water from wells within 3 miles of the site.

Spring Creek, a tributary of Oatka Creek, is within 1 mile downslope of the site and is used for recreational activities. A fresh water wetland is within 1 mile of the site.

Status (February 21, 1990): New York State is investigating the possibility of Jones Chemicals conducting a remedial investigation/feasibility study to determine the type and extent of contamination at the site and identify alternatives for remedial action.
