Coolant Oil

Seneca, SC: (Jan-28-08) The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had reached an agreement for approximately $9 million with several large electrical companies that had once done business with Carolina Transformer Company of Fayetteville, NC. The agency stated that it had three years to seek compensation from smaller entities. Carolina Transformer Company was an electrical transformer repair and rebuilding firm that operated from 1967 to 1982. According to EPA records, in 1979 the company was cited for dumping coolant oil from the transformers that contained, among other hazardous chemicals, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The EPA brought charges against the city of Seneca, over clean up costs associated with the North Carolina hazardous waste site, alleging that the city contributed to the damage. As part of a settlement reached, the city agreed to a $40,000 payout to resolve the matter. [INDEPENDENT MAIL: COOLANT CONTAMINATION]
