Cabot Kopper Superfund Site
Monday afternoon Gainesville City and Alachua County leaders are still trying to figure out a way to clean up years of frustrating contamination. Local leaders are trying to envision the future of the property.
Robert Derochemont has worked near the Cabot-Kopper site for over 30 years.
"I keep hearing that they keep cleaning it up over and over again. My question is why didn't they get it done the first time?" asks Derochemont, a National Vacuum Employee.
According to nearby folks, not much has been done to clean up this contaminated area. At a special City Commission meeting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outlined potential site land use and soil clean up standards. But there were plenty of questions from Gainesville's City Commissioners. To see the complete story please see video on right.
