Residents and activists around the former CTS electronic component manufacturing plant in south Asheville are concerned about the EPA's plan to clean up the site.
A plan to pour chemicals into the soil to break down harmful chemicals into carbon dioxide and water should take around two-and-a-half years to complete. It's going to cost the plant owners around nine-million-dollars.
Residents are worried about how the EPA will control all the vapors that will be released. Some residents say they have suffered health problems because they've lived near the CTS site for years.
Some people believe the EPA and the CTS owners should be held responsible and the cleanup comes years too late.
