About 7 Nights and 700 Pages Later
The first reviews are out and it's not exactly two thumbs up for the federal government's plan to clean up a Superfund site in northwest Gainesville. About 7 nights and 700 pages after the final plan was released, local officials said the EPA's plan could have been stronger. The plan won't haul the soil off site but house it there. However, leaders are pleased with plans to combat water contamination and to remove up to two feet of soil from neighboring properties.
"That's fairly straightforward I mean it doesn't require fancy engineering plans to do that kinda of work so we're hoping the neighborhood cleanup can really get going quick," said Chris Bird with Alachua County's Department of Environmental Protection.
