General Electric Morrison Facility

Morrison, Illinois

The General Electric Company (GE) located at 709 West Wall Street (Site) operated a manufacturing facility in Morrison, Illinois, from the late 1940s until 2010. The facility manufactured components for motors and motor control equipment that were assembled at other locations. Prior to 1994, GE used chlorinated organic solvents for removing oil from the manufactured components prior to use in the final product. A small immersion tank degreaser and a larger continuous process line degreaser were located in the Main Building. While no longer in operation, GE continues to take responsibility for facility-related solvents found in soils and groundwater.
