The Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) held a public availability session Tuesday evening at Cross Roads Elementary School in Gulfport. Representatives from the E.P.A., the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (M.D.E.Q.), and the Attorney General's office will attend the meeting to talk about the old Chemfax site off of Three Rivers Road. Toxic byproducts from the Chemfax plant got into the soil and groundwater on the site from 1955 to 1995 before the E.P.A. stepped in. A $1.5 million cleanup was done in 1999 and a long term plan was set up in 2002, but seven years later, soil samples showed the toxins were still there. A final plan to remove soil and monitor groundwater has been decided upon and the E.P.A. explained this plan to the public at the meeting Tuesday night.
