Albany - Albany's Water, gas and light is waiting for a decision from the Environmental Protection Division before it can clean up an old coal burning site. In June, WG&L submitted a plan to the EPD for cleaning up the site on Front Street. They're waiting for the state to approve that plan.

The clean up could cost anywhere from three million to ten million dollars. Keith Goodin said, "The cleanup process will be monitored probably every inch or two inches of dirt by scientists, chemists, you name it. Especially at the beginning to make certain what we think is there, is there, and if there's something unusual we can act on it as quickly as possible."

 The cleanup will hopefully begin in the spring and could take as long as three years.
