The site at 3283 South Dort Highway was agricultural land until development in 1960 for a tool manufacturer. Various tool manufacturers operated at the site from 1960 to 1990. The site has been used as an equipment rental operation since 1990. A Baseline Environmental Assessment (BEA) was submitted to EGLE in June 2023. A subsurface investigation with groundwater sampling was completed on the site during February 2023 regarding the past use as a tool manufacturer. A groundwater sample was collected near a floor drain within a building on the northern portion of the site and the results were PFHxS at a concentration of 121 ppt (compared to 51 ppt), PFOA at a concentration of 88 ppt (compared to 8 ppt), and PFOS at a concentration of 28.8 ppt (compared to 16 ppt). Groundwater flow direction was not determined during the February 2023 subsurface investigation but is suspected to flow to the north. The nearest water body is Thread Creek located about a ¾ mile to the east. There are currently no known impacts to surface water bodies.
