Eveready Battery Co. Plant Cleanup: Dennis Kucinich Speaks at Public Meeting

Following the closing of the Eveready Battery Co. plant, the sale and development of the site was postponed as documentation emerged that toxic metals and volatile chemicals were found in a waste pit. In part through the efforts of Congressman Dennis Kucinich, this documentation was made public and the Environmental Protection Agency intervened. These events prompted Eveready to perform a voluntary cleanup of the site.
