Residents Tour Koppers Superfund Site
It was an open house at the site of a place filled with mystery.
For the first time, Gainesville residents who spent years protesting the Koppers superfund site were allowed inside the gate.
Residents say chemicals once used to treat wood at this facility contaminated the soil.
But that may not be the only problem. Some believe there are drums buried on site containing toxic chemicals.
Koppers has been taken over by Beazer East-- a company that's working to clean up the site.
Employees of Beazer confirm there are buried drums at other sites... but say it's unlikely they are here.
Beazer east employees say they should have a remediation plan by next month.
One option would be to contain all contaminated soil in one spot. Another option would be to completely remove it.
