The Daily Journal Online is reporting that the EPA will be holding a 30 day comment period between July 20 and August 20, 2010 for residents to ask questions about a proposed plan of clean up.

Not only was lead found in the soil, but in the well water. Many residents have also been provided with bottled water.
