Agreement signed on Koppers Superfund site cleanup

Posted by Robyn, March 3, 2013

The decades-long negotiations on the cleanup of the contaminated Koppers Superfund site have taken a significant step forward.

Thursday, the legal agreement between the federal government and Beazer East Inc. on the remediation of the former wood treatment plant was filed in federal court.

That comes about 30 years after the Cabot-Koppers property, located off Northwest 23rd Avenue a short distance east of Northwest Sixth Street, was placed on the federal Superfund priority list.
