AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - A South Georgia college is being investigated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Traces of asbestos were found during the demolition of Georgia Southwestern University's Complex III, but the EPA said the amount was to small to pose a threat to the public.

The demolition of that old dormitory began October 14th and is now completely leveled.

The University plans to open a new residence hall in August 2009.

The EPA's investigation is still on going.
