EPA to hold meeting on Gastonia contamination

The Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public meeting Monday on the cleanup of a Superfund hazardous waste site in Gastonia.

The Hemphill Road TCE site was once occupied by a chemical drum recycling business that contaminated groundwater. The site was added to the National Priorities List of the Superfund cleanup program in December.

The EPA meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday at Ridge Baptist Church, 3818 Old York Rd. in Gastonia.
