(Toledo, OH) Cleanup is underway at a former Toledo factory, now considered a Superfund site.
The federal Environmental Protection Agency says asbestos removal is expected to take about two months to complete at the former Champion Spark Plug factory on Upton Avenue.
The EPA calls the cleanup a "time-critical action" costing about one-point-eight million taxpayer dollars to protect the health of people who live in the central city. Asbestos co-mingled with building debris remained strewn over five acres of the former factory site after the buildings were torn down in 2012.
Toledo city officials referred the site to the federal EPA for Superfund cleanup last year.
