The Delfasco Forge Site is the location of a former forge and foundry facility. Delfasco Forge Division operated at this site from 1981 to 1997. Delfasco performed steel and iron forging, metal fabrication and machining operations. Delfasco used trichloroethylene (TCE) as a degreaser in their operations. Investigations conducted from 2003 to 2005 indicated that a release of TCE had occurred and the TCE had reached groundwater. The contamination plume in the ground water extends under 65 acres of a residential neighborhood adjacent to the Site.
The Delfasco Forge facility is located at 114 NE 28th Street in Grand Prairie. The facility is approximately 1.1 acres. The Site including the residential neighborhood is bounded by NE 28th Street to the west, Bowles Street to the north, Hensley Drive to the east, and E Main Street to the South. The actual perimeter of the Site is subject to change as the groundwater plume and the soil vapor plume are better defined.
