ST. LOUIS (AP) - Federal regulators will share their cleanup plans this week with residents of a St. Louis County neighborhood where contaminated groundwater lingers from a 25-year-old industrial accident.
The regional office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has scheduled a 90-minute meeting for 7 p.m. Thursday at the First Baptist Church of Elmwood Park, 1452 Dielman Road.
A 1988 spill at a metal facility on Page Avenue in Overland caused groundwater contamination in the north St. Louis County area from the chemical trichloroethylene, or TCE.
The EPA says it will share details from recent indoor air samples taken at several Elmwood Park homes as well as future cleanup plans by the property's owners.
Property owner PerkinElmer Inc. is required to clean up the site under a 2012 settlement agreement and consent order.
