Chemical Cleanup Underway at North Andover, MA Plaza

August 7, 2010 - Work is underway to remove chemicals in the soil below North Andover Plaza that leaked from a dry cleaning business there.

A patch of ground below Ace Cleaners, 66 Peters St., is believed to be the origin of contamination, according to a cleanup plan on file with the North Andover Health Department.

Located at the intersection of Route 114 and Peters Street, the plaza is also home to five other businesses — Rocky's Ace Hardware, Panera Bread, Burger King, Den Rock Wine & Spirits and Supercuts. There is also a Bank of America ATM adjacent to the dry cleaner.

Soil tests below the businesses and plaza parking lot have detected the solvents tetrachloroethene and trichloroethene, according to the cleanup plan.
