By Mark Iandolo | Jan 5, 2017

CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced Dec. 15 it had started an emergency response action to clean up the vacant Williamson Polishing & Plating building in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood of Indianapolis.


The now-vacant 14,600-square-foot building was the operational facility for Williamson Polishing & Plating from 1937 until June 2016. At the location, the company polished and electroplated brass, cadmium, copper, chrome and other metals for customers.


The emergency response plan will involve identifying possible hazards at the site as well as dismantling and decontaminating equipment and other building components. It will also attempt to dispose of all hazardous substances.

The work should be completed by the spring, the EPA announced.
