Officials Begin Clearing Away Contaminant

Montgomery, Alabama –
It has taken almost ten years, but the Alabama Department of Transportation is preparing to begin cleaning up contaminate water found in groundwater in a community near Coliseum Boulevard.

The 4.7 MILLION dollar project will cover an area of about 41 acres. Officials are clearing away low concentrations of trichloroethylene or TCE which is a common solvent for asphalt testing.

Low concentrations of TCE were discovered almost ten years ago when construction site tests were conducted for a potential fast food restaurant.
