A panel of experts in various fields outlined different aspects of the current and future disposition of 1.5 million cubic yards of PCB-contaminated soil at the Allied site, in Kalamazoo. State representative Sean McCann, Kalamazoo mayor Bobby Hopewell, WMU faculty, and city staff presented information on the health threats, hydrogeological characteristics, and proximity to homes, a senior center, and two elementary schools, of the toxic waste site.

Residents then made comments, unanimously rejecting the EPA plan to consolidate and cap the waste, rather than remove it and dispose of it in approved landfills.

The Allied Site Task Force continues to meet on Tuesday evenings at Goodwill, 420 E. Alcott, at 6:00 pm.
