$3 million earmarked to look for problems at Mansfield GM site

Mansfield New Journal

ONTARIO -- An environmental trust will spend $3 million on the vacant Mansfield-Ontario General Motors Stamping facility, according to the Ohio Attorney General's office. The money will go toward site investigation, potential soil excavation and ground water monitoring.

Former General Motors manufacturing sites in Elyria, Moraine, Parma and Toledo also will benefit from the deal announced Wednesday between General Motors, the U.S. Department of Justice and 14 states, including Ohio.

Attorney General Richard Cordray said the size of the environmental trust is unusual.

"We carefully negotiated for months to be sure that cleanup of the former manufacturing sites was not just left on the backs of these Ohio communities," Cordray said.
