Group cleaning up contaminated Springfield site plans more testing

Representatives from a group tasked with cleaning up a contaminated northwest Springfield industrial site said Wednesday they are planning to do more testing beyond the property line as they try to determine how much of the area has been affected.

The Greenfield Environmental Trust Group — which is responsible for cleaning up the site of the old Kerr-McGee railroad tie plant — held its first public meeting in Springfield on Wednesday at the Library Station on Kansas Expressway.
