Whirlpool Corporation and the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) have worked together closely to study the TCE in the groundwater beneath and adjacent to the former Whirlpool manufacturing facility in Fort Smith.

In December 2013, ADEQ issued a Remedial Action Decision Document (RADD) which lays out the science-based remediation plan Whirlpool has been following to attack and remove TCE from the groundwater under and near the former Whirlpool site. A Revised RADD, dated November 15, 2015, was approved by ADEQ following extensive testing, research, and a review of public comments that determined the most effective method for addressing the TCE in the groundwater.

The following documents contain the reports filed regarding our risk evaluation, monitoring, remediation, and risk management activities to address this issue since 2001.
