The surface soil on the J.A.C.O. Plating property contains arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and manganese at concentrations that might pose health hazards to children playing on the property. The children who are most likely to be adversely affected, those likely to exhibit pica behavior, are not likely to be on the property without supervision. There are plans to redevelop the property as a commercial/industrial facility. The surface soil contamination would pose no health hazard if that is done.
The shallow groundwater at the property contains nickel and zinc at concentrations that might pose minor human health hazards to children using the groundwater for drinking water. The shallow groundwater also contains arsenic, methylene chloride, tetrachloroethylene, and trichloroethylene at concentrations that might increase the risk of contracting cancer from either consumption or inhalation secondary to household use. There is no record of past or current use of the shallow groundwater at the property.
