Regulators with the state Department of Environmental Protection have accepted an application from FMC Corp. to clean up its former peroxide plant and fly ash basin in South Charleston.
The company negotiated a voluntary remediation agreement with the department's Office of Environmental Remediation to clean up any contaminants located at the 7-acre site along MacCorkle Avenue.
As part of the agreement, FMC will work to assess the human health and ecological risks associated with new development at the site.
The former hydrogen peroxide production facility was in operation from 1962 through 2008.
Crews have demolished nearly all of the buildings at the site and are preparing to conduct further investigation into any potential soil or groundwater contamination.
The project falls under the state's Voluntary Remediation and Redevelopment Act.
A public repository for all information at the site has been set up at the South Charleston Public Library.
