EPA Lists Land Ready For Commercial Use

Last updated on Tuesday, November 6, 2007

(FRANKFORT) - Federal officials say some land near Frankfort left tainted by a porcelain factory is ready to return to commercial use.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says a 13-acre parcel known as the Augustus Hook site is now in good enough condition to be sold. It has gone through two government-supervised cleanups.

The land was once listed on the EPA's environmental superfund list.

The property will be auctioned November 14th.
