The Free Press WV

West Virginia environmental authorities have approved cleanup plans by the owners of the industrial warehouse that burned for a week in Parkersburg.

The warehouse is owned by Intercontinental Export Import Inc., or IEI Plastics, which says it buys and sells an array of recycled plastics worldwide.

The blaze at the 420,000-square-foot (39,000-square-meter) property in Parkersburg began October 21 and was extinguished October 29.

The Department of Environmental Protection, in a November 29 letter, says the plan with additions submitted by the company, Gator Engineering and Aquifer Restoration Inc., is acceptable.

It includes site control, air monitoring, storm water disposal, and excavation, transport and disposal of burnt waste.
