COMPANIES TO HELP CLEAN K-ZOO RIVER
(2007-02-28)
(wgvu) - The U-S Environmental Protection Agency
says two companies have agreed to spend 21 (m) million dollars
cleaning up a mile-and-a-half stretch of contaminated sediment
along the Kalamazoo River near Plainwell.
The E-P-A says Georgia-Pacific and Millennium Holdings have also
agreed to spend another 15 (m) million dollars doing more
environmental studies throughout the 80-mile Kalamazoo River
Superfund site.
The two legal agreements are the result of mediated discussions
that started more than two years ago among the two companies and
state and federal agencies.
The cleanup agreement involves removing 44-hundred pounds of
toxic polychlorinated biphenyls -- or P-C-B's -- believed to be
within 132-thousand cubic yards of sediment.
