Mountain Top Contamination Cleanup Complete
WRIGHT TOWNSHIP -- Nearly two decades and $ 1 million later, state officials say contamination from an old gas station in Luzerne County is finally cleaned up. Department of Environmental Protection officials say more than 1,000 tons of contaminated soil and groundwater had to be trucked out of the Mountain Top area. The project took nearly twice as long as it should have because crews discovered leaking gasoline tanks underground that were never reported to the state.
