The facility, generally located at 704 South Missouri Street, is occupied by Compton’s Furniture & More, a retail outlet.
Public comments on the Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis (EE/CA) will be accepted from Aug. 26, 2020, through Sept. 25, 2020. The EE/CA and Administrative Record file (AR file) for this site are available on EPA’s website (see Administrative Records). Upon timely request, the comment period can be extended by an additional 15 days.
A Fact Sheet related to this notice is available online. Fact sheets with more information about TCE are available on EPA's website and ATSDR's website. Additional site information is also available online.
