Cul-Mac Industries LLC is located at 3720 Venoy Road and produces professional cleaning products, car wash cleaning products, pool sanitizers, and other disinfectants. This property was originally developed for industrial purposes in 1941 and has been owned and/or operated by various industrial companies, including 3M Adhesives Coatings & Sealers Division (from at least 1974 until 1987).

EGLE reviewed a Baseline Environmental Assessment (BEA) that was conducted in August 2022 due to a change in ownership/operator. The BEA included several groundwater samples that exceeded the groundwater clean-up criteria with maximum concentrations of 3,100 ppt PFOS (compared to 16 ppt), 900 ppt PFOA (compared to 8 ppt), 9 ppt PFNA (compared to 6 ppt), and 68 ppt PFHxS (compared to 51 ppt).

There is no groundwater flow on the site. Groundwater on the site is perched, discontinuous, and confined by clay. The nearest waterbody is the Lower River Rouge which is to the north of the site.
