A cleanup now underway at the site of a former Terre Haute Dry Cleaner.
The former owners Ermisch Cleaners at 15th Street and Poplar Street volunteered to work with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management to remove soil contaminated with cleaning solvents that pose a health hazard.
All homes in the area are on city water so they are not affected by contamination to area ground water.
The contamination is not serious and is below EPA danger levels.
Ermisch is spending approximately $250,000 on the clean up and when the project is completed they will be protected from any future legal action.
Ermisch was in business for over 130 years.
