Last updated on Monday, February 18, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON) - Monroe County Commissioners have given final approval to clean up three sites near Bloomington that are contaminated with PCBS.

CBS Corporation will pay nearly $10 million dollars to cover the costs of the cleanup.

CBS is the successor to Westinghouse, which used PCBS in the manufacture of electrical capacitors at a Bloomington plant until the 1970s.
