Based on the available information, the Kinross Manufacturing Company property poses an urgent human health hazard from the unexploded ordnance present on the ground in a former target range north of the property. There are localized areas of soil contaminated with lead or chromium on the property that might pose a health hazard if the property were developed for residential use. The buildings on the property were painted with lead-based paint and contain floor tile and insulation that contain asbestos. The shallow groundwater on the property contains lead, methylene chloride, and thallium at concentrations above the U.S. EPA's regulatory limits for drinking water.


Using appropriate techniques, immediately remove the unexploded ordnance and explosive waste from the former target range north of the property and dispose of it properly.

If the property is to be used for residences, evaluate the areas where high lead or chromium concentrations were found for the appropriate remedial response to minimize the potential hazard.

Encapsulate or remove, using appropriate techniques, lead-based paint and asbestos-containing materials during future renovation or demolition of the buildings on the property. There are sufficient asbestos-containing materials on the property that Federal regulations require removal of the asbestos before demolition. The regulations also prescribe the appropriate removal techniques.

Use the available Kinross Township water system for any redevelopment of the property.

New environmental data or information concerning the future use of this property may require future health consultations.

If any citizen has additional information or health concerns regarding the Kinross Manufacturing Corporation property, please contact the Michigan Department of Community Health, Environmental Epidemiology Division, at 1-800-648-6942.
