Most drycleaning facilities use chlorinated solvents or perchloroethylene (PCE) as the primary cleaning chemical. Releases of PCE can occur as the result of equipment failure, spills and leaks. Even minor spills or leaks can result in significant quantities of PCE being released to the underlying soil and groundwater over time.
Most environmental investigations of dry cleaning facilities include soil borings, with the collection of soil samples, from locations as close to the dry cleaning machines as possible.
