Ohio EPA Postpones Public Meeting Regarding Former Kilgore Manufacturing Property
The previously scheduled July 24, 2017, meeting at the Center for Equine Science to discuss cleanup plans at the former Kilgore Manufacturing Property, 400 N. Spring Road, Westerville, has been cancelled by Ohio EPA. The information session and public hearing will be rescheduled (date to be determined).
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1972 to consolidate efforts to protect and improve air quality, water quality and waste management in Ohio. Since then, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling.
