Dry Cleaning Operaton Causes Hotel Contamination

Acknowledgement to Great American
A hotel constructed in the early 1980s had a dry cleaning operation in the basement of the building as a service for their guests. Prior to sale of the property in the late 2000s, an environmental investigation was performed on behalf of the buyer. This investigation found staining around the base of the dry cleaning machine, triggering intrusive investigations. The soil and groundwater investigation found contamination at levels requiring clean-up beneath the property. Additionally, indoor air sampling found actionable levels of dry cleaning chemicals extending up several floors in the building. As a result of the discovery of contamination, the property sale fell through and the hotel owner is being held responsible for the clean-up costs.
