Cabot-Koppers Superfund Site Update
The long and tedious process of cleaning up Gainesville's Superfund site has taken a relatively large stride forward.
The federal environmental protection agency filed what is known as a "Consent Decree" with a federal court.
It is the final contract between the EPA and Beazer East; the company responsible for cleaning up the Cabot- Koppers Superfund site.
The specifics of the consent decree are not yet known, but should be revealed sometime in the next week.
There will be a 30 day public comment period, followed by a judge's decision whether to approve the decree. Cleanup work would formally begin shortly thereafter.
The property was first declared a Superfund site in 1983.
