You can submit comments on the Consent Decree for an interim cleanup to Assistant Attorney General Cruden by January 6, 2017! Please click here to read more and to send your comments to the EPA. As many public comments as possible will make it even more likely that a larger area of the site will be cleaned up in the immediate future!

Suggested wording:

Dear Assistant Attorney General Cruden,

I write to express my support of the Consent Decree (2016-29355) referencing groundwater contamination by tricholorethylene at the CTS of Asheville, Inc. Superfund Site in Asheville, NC.

For too many years people living near the CTS site have dealt with the effects of this pollution. Please do everything within your power to ensure this decree is implemented quickly, effectively, and efficiently so that cleanup can begin in 2017 as slated and continue until a full and complete remedy is achieved.

[Your name]

Also, EPA is inviting public input on how they’ve been doing keeping the community informed and engaged in the process of cleanup at the CTS site. You can print out and fill out a short survey here to let them know what they could be doing better to keep you informed about the site.

POWER is working diligently toward a complete cleanup of the CTS of Asheville site. Be sure to sign the petition for a full-scale cleanup. Want to get more involved? E-mail for information about attending our meetings.
