The Environmental Protection Agency is doubling up crews to clean up polluted soil in the Stephen A. Foster neighborhood.
Air pollution may have adverse effects on pregnant women.
Beazer East, Inc., a wood treatment company responsible for potentially-cancerous soil contamination in a neighborhood of the Gainesville area, began soil remediation at their pilot property at 436 NW 30th Ave. on Monday.
A Stephen Foster resident said that by digging up contaminated soil caused by the Cabot-Koppers Superfund site, it could only make the pollution worse.
A consent decree was filed Thursday to clean up the Cabot-Koppers Superfund site, which has contaminated local soil and the Floridan aquifer system for the past three decades.
