Wickes Manufacturing Trichloroethylene (TCE) Plume, DECEMBER 7, 2017 - 7 P.M.History
The Wickes Manufacturing Trichloroethylene (TCE) Plume is in Antrim County.  Mount Clemens Industries Inc., later known as Wickes Manufacturing, used TCE in vapor degreasers as part of the manufacturing of auto parts in Mancelona from 1947 to 1967. Waste containing TCE was discarded on the ground and in lagoons, where it seeped through the soil and became dissolved into the groundwater.  Both companies went out of business many years ago. As a results, DEQ funds have been allocated to address the TCE contamination.
