mills gap road site
Xpress has received notice from the EPA that the agency has reached an agreement with the Elkhardt, Ind.-based CTS Corp., the company likely responsible for contamination at and near its former Mills Gap Road property. Stay tuned for more details. Here is the release from the EPA.
Photo by Jonathan Welch Residents who live near the contaminated former CTS facility on Mills Gap Road have waited for years for cleanup, and as the time draws closer for EPA’s review of the site for inclusion on the National Priorities List (which would place it among the most severely contaminated sites in the U.S.), residents have decided to wait no longer. A group of 16 individuals and families filed suit against the Elkhart, Ind.-based corporation yesterday in federal court. Complainants include Tate MacQueen, spokesperson with the advocacy group Citizen’s Monitoring Council, which has worked to get the issue noticed and addressed, and Lee Ann Smith, whose young sons were treated for cancer after they were exposed to high levels of contaminants in a stream flowing from the CTS property near their home.
