On March 19, 2014 Tennessee Department of Environmental Conservation investigated a complaint at 420 Lyndell Bell Road in Coffee County. The complaint stated that demolition waste from a house in Manchester had been disposed at this location. There is a business on this property that sells a variety of plastic drums, buckets, and containers as well as metal drums. On March 26, 2013 while investigating the complaint regarding the demolition waste TDEC personnel observed a “pit” that was being used to drain 55-gallon drums. There was a grate placed across the pit to facilitate this dumping. While It appeared that these particular drums contained what appeared to be some sort of food related waste, there were also a large number of other drums nearby that had a petroleum odor. There were numerous drums with flammable labels and the smell solvents and petroleum was detected throughout the site. On March 27, 2014, OSC Steve Spurlin conducted a site investigation and observed numerous drums in poor conditions leaking oils, corrosives, and possibly solvents. OSC Spurlin initiated an emergency response action to address the drums and spilled materials.
