    Stage of Clean-up: Study Underway

    Conditions at Proposal (October 22, 1999): The site consists of an area of contaminated fill on parts of both the Centredale Manor and Brook Village apartment complex properties in North Providence, Rhode Island. The 4.7-acre Centredale Manor property and the 4.3-acre Brook Village property are bordered by Route 44 (Smith Street) to the north, a small wooded area and an unpaved perennial drainage channel (alternately referred to as the drainage channel or former tail race) to the east, a wooded wetland area to the south, and the Woonasquatucket River to the west. The site comprises an area of contaminated fill where the DIOXIN 2,3,7,8-TETRACHLORODIBENZO-P-DIOXIN (TCDD) and other hazardous substances have been disposed or have come to be located. From at least 1921 to 1940, the site was used for textile manufacturing by the Centredale Worsted Mill and then the Olneyville Wool Combing Company. It is currently unknown what type of activities occurred at the site between 1940 and 1943. Between 1943 and 1971, the site was used by two companies, the Atlantic Chemical Company/Metro-Atlantic, Inc., for chemical manufacturing and New England Container Company, Inc. for drum recycling.  More...
