VCP Site Maintenance
5 Star Matlock I General Partnership - Comet Cleaners
This site was entered into the VCP and dse continued to maintain the site as outlined by the TCEQ. The groundwater in the vicinity was delineated to drinking water standards, and was not expected to require further delineation. The Comet Cleaners had been operated by three different owners since approximately 1990. Use of PCE as the dry-cleaning solvent was discontinued in 1998 and was switched to Exxon 2000DF, a synthetic petroleum derivative. No known significant spills of PCE occurred, however, groundwater data suggested a spill may have occurred in the location at the rear of the dry cleaning facility where the trucks would have parked for delivery of dry cleaning solvents. dse prepared the application for this location to be entered into the DCRP fund.
