Gainesville's Superfund Site May Grow
The size of the clean-up of Gainesville's Superfund Site may grow. EPA leaders and Beazer East representatives are holding a meeting at the Senior Recreation Center for residents until eight o'clock tonight.
They are addressing the upcoming soil removal at Cabot Koppers Superfund Site which starts in January. Earlier this month, Beazer East and EPA leaders asked residents living on the edges of the toxic area if they could have permission to do more soil sampling.
They say there may be toxins right on the edge of the site and they can't clean it up without homeowners' consent.
"There are some properties where we're not sure what the soil contaminant concentrations are so we're seeking the access to do that sampling to completely firm up those cut lines for the soil remediation," Scott Miller (Remedial Project Manager) said.
EPA leaders say they're still waiting on a federal judge to decide upon the consent decree. The decree would provide the clean up details for Beazer East.
