Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Cps/Madison Industries. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Site Description The CPS/Madison Industries site consists of two adjacent manufacturing facilities located on a 35-acre tract of land. CPS, which is no longer in operation, processed, treated, and stored organic chemicals used in the production of water treatment agents, lubricants, oil field chemicals, and anti-corrosive agents. The company generated spent halogenated solvents that are shipped off site for disposal. The hazardous wastes were stored in tanks or containers, where some solvent distillation occurred. Madison Industries produces zinc compounds for fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and food additives. Since 1967, the two companies repeatedly have dumped and discharged chemicals into the public sewer system as well as onto their respective properties. Thirty-two municipal wells were closed due to contamination. Madison Industries is still in operation and continues to handle hazardous materials at the site. Approximately 1,000 people live within ½ mile of the site. Prickett's Brook and Pond have been contaminated by the site, but are not used for recreation or as water supplies.
