Future of Contaminated Site in Gainesville
More than a quarter of a century after one Gainesville property was listed among the worst toxic waste sites in the country, a big decision about its future is just around the corner. The city of Gainesville and Alachua county commission have both voted to send their recommendations to the Environmental Protection Agency about its proposed plan to clean up the Cabot Koppers site. Besides future public input, there is another party who will weigh in about the plan. Beazer East, responsible for the cost of the cleanup, will have a say in the final plan.
"We are expecting Beazer on the other side to say to the EPA that there are some things they're reluctant to do," said Alachua County Environmental Protection Department's Director Chris Bird.
The public still has until October 15th to submit their comments. To see more on this story, watch the video to your right.
