LATA Environmental Services of Kentucky will start field work in the&nbsp;summer of 2013 to cleanup a hazardous chemical called TCE. The chemical in the soil likely came from storm drains and spills at the plant&rsquo;s loading docks. According to the DOE, the contamination is currently confined to the plant&rsquo;s property and poses no threat to residents.</p> Thu, 05 Apr 2012 19:09:36 +0000 Shelly Baskin 17530 at http://wkms.org Cleanup Plan Approved for Groundwater Contamination at Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant
