Ark. agency reviews plan for closed Whirlpool site

July 20, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality is reviewing a plan to deal with a degreasing solvent that was detected in groundwater at a recently shuttered Whirlpool plant in Fort Smith.

An environmental consulting firm submitted a final remedy work plan to the state environmental agency this week on behalf of Benton Harbor, Mich.-based Whirlpool Corp.

The plan, which calls for chemical oxidant injections and continued monitoring, comes decades after Whirlpool ceased using trichloroethylene, or TCE, at the Fort Smith site.
