ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A large hole in the 1300 hundred block of Dawson Road is part of an environmental cleanup of the old Dixie Service Cleaners site.

To clear the site, the environmental construction crews with Sailors Engineering dug down more than five feet to remove soil that may contain certain chemicals used by the cleaner.

The Environmental Protective Division mandates the soil must be sent to a special landfill that handles environmental waste. The crews expect to fill in the hole later this week.

Synovus Bank who's holding the property in a trust for the McCormack family says the goal is either to develop the site or sell it.
