Missouri Receives $3 Million To Help Clean Springfield Industrial Site
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — The state has received another $3 million to help clean up a Springfield industrial site contaminated by chemicals. Attorney General Chris Koster says the money was part of a settlement from a bankruptcy settlement involving Anadarko Petroleum. The site in north Springfield is polluted with creosote. It's a byproduct of coal tar that was used to treat railroad ties.
