EPA proposes CTS Superfund site near Asheville for priorities list Nanci Bompey Asheville Citizen-Times (NC) March 8, 2011SKYLAND - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday that it has proposed including the former CTS of Asheville plant on its list of the nation's most environmentally contaminated properties.
Placement on the National Priorities List could speed cleanup of the site off Mills Gap Road, where officials have found ground and well water contaminated with an industrial solvent and suspected carcinogens.
The EPA has 40,000 sites on its Superfund list. Of those, there are 1,290 on the priorities list, including 35 in North Carolina and six in Western North Carolina.
Residents near the plant for years have pushed government agencies to pay closer attention to threats from the former plant site. Some said Tuesday they were skeptical the latest step would bring action.
