U.S. EPA to resume cleanup

U.S. EPA will resume cleanup and sampling of residential properties at the Matthiessen and Hegeler Zinc Co. Superfund site. Starting this spring, residents will see workers setting up equipment in the area. EPA contractors will contact property owners where elevated levels of contamination were identified to schedule discussions about soil cleanup and landscaping restoration.

If you have not signed an access agreement and are interested in having your property sampled, please contact:
