$2M to help deal with Tecumseh Products site contamination

TECUMSEH, Mich. (AP) -

 A Michigan city is getting $2 million to help deal with contamination at a former manufacturing site.
   The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality recently announced a $1 million grant and $1 million loan to the Lenawee County community of Tecumseh to address conditions at the Tecumseh Products site, which has seen industrial uses since the late 1800s.
   The money will pay for a protective vapor barrier under a building that will be reused and demolition of another building.
   Tecumseh Products is cleaning up contaminated soil and groundwater that has migrated into the surrounding neighborhood. A developer plans to redevelop the site into Revival Commons, including industrial, commercial and retail space.
   The state says prior uses as a foundry, metal and machine shop and refrigeration equipment manufacturer left the site contaminated.
