"Velsicol Site Plan Angers Residents"

"Two months before completion of a health risk study on Velsicol pollution in South Chattanooga, state regulators say the company doesn't need to do any more cleanup but should put a deeper layer of dirt on its former pesticide and herbicide manufacturing site on Central Avenue.

The permit modification by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation angers people who live and work nearby.

'I'm very disappointed,' said community organizer Elizabeth Tallman-Gazaway."
