This 72.47-acre site is directly adjacent to two other former GM manufacturing properties owned by RACER — Lansing Plant 3 and Lansing Plant 6. The vacant property is immediately south of Interstate 69 and north of nearby Interstate 496, and is bordered by railroad tracks to the east. It zoned H, Industrial.

Historic testing found concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) above regulatory criteria. To investigate historic exceedances and other potential releases, environmental investigations at the plant began in the spring of 2011 and were substantially complete in December 2014. Based on the data collected, there are concentrations of VOCs (including 1,4-dioxane), SVOCs, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and metals at Plant 2 above applicable criteria. In addition a light non-aqueous phase liquid (LNAPL), which appears to be a weathered oil, was identified in the subsurface at one area of the site.
A draft Corrective Measures Study (CMS) was submitted to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality in June 2014; an updated CMS report will be submitted when adequate information is available to propose a corrective measure for the lower 1,4-dioxane groundwater contamination. The CMS report will be updated to include the results of the post-June 2014 investigations and data evaluation activity and will summarize those areas under consideration for corrective measures, provide an explanation of options with associated costs, and identify the proposed corrective measures for applicable areas within Plant 2.
Implementation of the corrective measures will begin after MDEQ approves the CMS. Interim measures, such as bench-scale and field-scale pilot tests, pumping tests, design investigations and targeted excavations may be completed prior to MDEQ’s approval of the CMS. Groundwater monitoring will continue to allow for evaluation of concentrations trends.
