Iola Cleans Up Early 1900's Zinc Smelting Contaminants


Residents in Iola will be seeing state and federal agencies working in town over the next several weeks. City administrator Sid Fleming says the next phase of residential yard remediation is set to begin soon. He says the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment are having the work done to rid the town of contaminants left by zinc smelting in the early 1900's.


Fleming says this is a continuation of cleanup work that has already been done to some residences in the city. It will start with residential and move into commercial, depending on time and money. The cleanup process is expected to last for several years.
