Protester at CTS site

POWER Action Group was established in August 2012 by concerned community members to represent the interests of people who live near the contaminated CTS of Asheville Superfund site North Carolina. POWER stands for Protecting Our Water and Environmental Resources.

CTS closed its Asheville facility in 1986, but left tons of trichloroethylene (TCE) and other chemicals buried in the ground. These carcinogens are infiltrating our air, soil, and water. To safeguard human health and the environment, POWER is advocating for removal action, paid for by CTS Corporation, which is still alive and well in Indiana. (For more information on the history of the CTS site, click here.)

POWER is now soliciting proposals for a technical advisor to provide assistance in the review and analysis of cleanup activities conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region IV at the CTS of Asheville Superfund site.

Applications are due to POWER Jan. 10, 2014 by 5 p.m. and should be sent to info@poweractiongroup.org.
