New cleanup efforts for Superfund site

Microbe treatment is fastest route for Plymouth Avenue homes, EPA says

Support from Mountain View residents may be all that is required to quickly clean up a small toxic groundwater plume at the north end of Sierra Vista Avenue that was left behind by an early Silicon Valley circuit board manufacturer.

Hi,

I'm from Asheville, NC and oddly enough we are brothers and sisters in this story. We had a CTS plant here that ran the same type of facility for years from approximately late 50's to mid 80's. It was an electroplating facility as was CTS Printex. We are still fighting here to have CTS and the EPA to even begin cleaning up our site. It was just recently declared a superfund site after all these years. The plume here is presumably much larger than the plume described in this article and we unfortunately are still in the discussion phase rather than cleanup phase. I'm glad that some resolution is being made there. Here we have many wells that are polluted with TCE and residents here are extremely frustrated with the slow movement of the process. CTS needs to do what is right and not wait on litigation to clean up there mess.
