In the ongoing ground-water contamination case connected to the former CTS electroplating plant on Mills Gap Road in south Asheville, emails between the EPA and residents imply that agency action to get new water service was being considered last July. But municipal water hookups remain far from certain.
Officials declared that the CTS-contamination study had found no new imminent threats, only to be met by poignant responses from area residents, some of whom have had their wells capped, others who have health problems that they perceive to be related to the contamination, and many of whom are raising children. Residents pointed to such daily realities, to which the study's author responded, "We work with the information we have. That's reality."
Sen. Elizabeth Dole and Rep. Heath Shuler are both pressing the issue of groundwater contamination at the former site of CTS of Asheville on Mills Gap Road. Dole's office announced that she's written a letter to the head of the Environmental Protection Agency "demanding answers," while Shuler's staff is holding a meeting on the topic Thursday morning.
