ANDERSON, SC -

A project to remove debris from an old mill site in Anderson is underway.

The Toxaway Mill debris removal project at the corner of Gossett and Whitner Streets in Anderson is funded by an EPA Brownfield Cleanup grant received in 2010.

Anderson County Councilwoman Gracie Floyd says the goal is to remove 3,000 out of the 4,000 tons of building debris from the site during this phase of the project.

Synterra of Greenville is providing project management.

Belk Construction and Miller Construction out of Anderson are conducting field work for this part of the project, which is expected to take two to three weeks.

Another separate project funded by another EPA Brownfield Cleanup grant at the Riverside Mill is in its final phase of cleanup.

The site, next to the Toxaway Mill, is in the process of being capped with one and a half feet of clean fill material.  Field work there is expected to finish in one to two weeks.

CTC PBC out of Columbia and Hepaco of Charlotte are providing project management and field activities for this project.
