Sam Winer Motors Site, Akron, Ohio

Sam Winer Motors Site as seen from E. Waterloo Road

Currently the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is investigating the Sam Winer Motors Site near Akron, Ohio for a possible time-critical removal action. The Sam Winer Motors Site is located on E. Waterloo Rd. southeast of Akron, Ohio in Summit County.

This site is currently being investigated by the USEPA at the request of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA). In the Integrated Assessment performed by Ohio EPA in July 2000, significant levels of contamination were found near the southeast corner of the site, which was the previous location of Wright's Truck Stop. The Ohio EPA reported high levels of solvents and chemicals typical of gasoline spills (i.e. BTEX) in both groundwater and soil samples.

The TOSC program is currently providing technical assistance and educational services to Concerned Citizens Against Illegal Contamination (CCAIC) and other citizens of the Springfield community and surrounding areas.
