DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - An old industrial site is now ready for re-development.
Eight acres at 1800 McCall Street has now met all industrial clean up standards. The property last housed the NIBCO company.
A covenant not to sue now been filed under the Ohio EPA Voluntary Action Program.
It protects the property's owner and future owners from being legally responsible to the State of Ohio for further clean up investigations.
Following rules developed by Ohio EPA, the City of Dayton hired a certified professional to assess the property, identify any areas of environmental concern and remediate contamination.
13 areas were identified as needing clean up, including stained soils, creosote-treated floors, suspected underground storage tanks and spent foundry sand and chemicals.
Those chemicals included polyaromatic hydrocarbons, PCBs, regulated metals and petroleum products.
The former foundry site was in operation from 1897 until 1981. The city voluntarily cleaned it up.
