WASHINGTON (CN) – For forty years, until 1991, the Central Wood Preserving Company facility in East Feliciana Parrish, Louisiana used creosote, copper oxide and chromium and arsenic salts to make wood impervious to the elements. The facility also was spilling and dumping those same chemicals onto the soil and into the streams. After 20 years of remediation work, including the removal of 1,500 cubic meters of contaminated top soil, the Environmental Protection Agency proposes to remove the Central Wood Preserving Company from its Superfund site list.
