EPA Hears Concerns Over Koppers Cleanup
The Environmental Protection Agency is hosting a public meeting, that started at 6 P.M. Thursday at Stephen Foster Elementary, to hear citizen feedback on their proposed clean-up plan for the Cabbot Koppers Superfund site in Northwest Gainesville.
The EPA's cleanup plan calls for what amounts to a massive pile of dirt, offering this solution: scraping the contaminated soil on and around the site, and piling it up into a mound that would cover 32 of the 90 acre superfund site.
According to the EPA's plan, slurry walls would surround the mound, as well as a cover to block rainwater. However, several local groups are saying they want the contaminated soil cleaned up, not covered up.
