Gainesville Residents Voice Concerns at Cabot-Kopper Site Meeting
For neighbors of the Cabot- Koppers Superfund Site... the waiting is the hardest part.
Thursday they learned they will have to wait even longer for a solution.
At a meeting at Stephen Foster Elementary... officials with the EPA say they'll decide what to do after new soil samples are taken this week on and off the property, which could be around September.
In May, residents living near the Koppers site were given notices by the Alachua County Health Department, warning them of toxins in the soil off the Koppers property.
Now, they say they're waiting for new results... and new solutions.
The health department continues to warn residents to keep their children out of the soil and for everyone to wash their hands after being outside.
