ALBANY, GA (WALB) -The Georgia Environmental Protection Division is doing what it can to protect people and animals from harmful chemicals.
An old fertilizer warehouse used to be here on a cleared lot underneath the Jefferson Street Bridge.
For years, people have complained about the eyesore and the chemicals seeping into nearby waters, harming fish and other wildlife.
We spoke to a track supervisor who works near the property.
"They've done a lot of work and hauled a lot of dirt in and fixes it up. They have a nice facility if someone wanted to go back in it they shouldn't have a problem then," said Assistant Track Supervisor, Mike Justice.
The EPD has been working on this project to remove hazardous material and contaminated soil from the property for several years.
