The Omega Metal Processing Plant as seen today.

Omega Metal Processing is an abandoned chemical processing plant in Monson, Massachusetts, directly across the street from the First Ellis Mill on Bliss Street. It was owned and operated by the Omega Processing Co. On April 20, 1989, a massive chemical spill occurred that released around 200 gallons of cadmium cyanide into the Chicopee Brook, Monson's main water supply. The plant closed as a result of the heavy costs and penalties incurred because of the spill, and it has been abandoned ever since.
