Work starts for IEI site clean-up

WOOD COUNTY, W.Va. (WTAP) - We saw some activity Wednesday at the IEI Plastics site, starting the long clean-up process ahead.

The company Terradon Engineering is working at the site where IEI Plastics caught fire and burned for eight days, three months ago.

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection says the company was there to sample materials. They say the company is determining what, if any, material is considered hazardous waste and what material is non-hazardous waste.

A state DEP official flew into Parkersburg yesterday in a state helicopter, but we have not yet confirmed that it was connected to the work starting at IEI.
