While renovating the Livonia Transmission Plant (Plant), Ford Motor Company reported the discovery of chlorinated compounds in the groundwater to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE). Ford Motor Company investigated the contamination and determined one of these compounds, vinyl chloride, had migrated east of the plant in groundwater into the adjacent residential neighborhood. Ford Motor Company installed monitoring wells and soil gas wells around the plant and in the residential neighborhood in an effort to assess groundwater and soil gas conditions.
