EPA to take public comments on cleanup plan for Franklin
The Environmental Protection Agency is seeking comments on a proposed cleanup plan for Franklin. Some Franklin residents believe leftover contamination from old industrial sites in the area may be responsible for rare child cancers there.
Among other things, the EPA wants to treat groundwater south of the Amphenol site using a barrier to break down harmful chemicals as they flow through. It also plans to inject material in the water to reduce the toxicity of those chemicals.
