Deluxe Cleaners and Tailors Site

Deluxe Cleaners and Tailors (Site) is located at 1614 House Avenue in Cheyenne, Laramie County, Wyoming. The Site is an 8,712 square foot parcel bordered on the east by House Avenue, on the north by East 17th Street, on the west by a vacant parcel and on the south by an alley. 

A July 25, 2007 investigation revealed the presence of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) perchloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE) and dichloroethene (DCE) in the soil and the groundwater samples taken from the Carl’s Jr. Restaurant property, south of the Site. These VOCs are commonly associated with dry cleaning operations. Furthermore, the direction of groundwater flow suggests the Deluxe Cleaners and Tailors dry cleaning business as the likely source. In 2008, the Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) Voluntary Remediation Program (VRP) recommended the Site be entered into the VRP to address impacts from contamination of chlorinated solvents. The Site was entered into the VRP on September 15, 2009. On November 30, 2011, the Site was withdrawn from the VRP after determination that Deluxe Cleaners and Tailors was not viable and therefore eligible for the Orphan Site Remediation Program (OSRP).
