The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host an informational meeting to discuss the Eagle Industries Superfund Site on Tuesday, Nov. 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Sooner East Church of Christ, 10620 SE 29th St., Oklahoma City, OK 73130. Representatives from DEQ will be available to discuss the site and answer questions.

Eagle Industries is a 2.271-acre property located at 10901 S.E. 29th Street in Midwest City.  Eagle Industries inspected and repaired aircraft oxygen and fire extinguisher systems for third party customers from 1990 through 2010s. Onsite soil and ground water contamination resulted from improper handling practices of the chemical trichloroethylene (TCE).  In January 2018, Eagle Industries was listed on the National Priorities List to address the contamination. Superfund is the federal government’s program to clean up the nation’s uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
