Before EPA officials get their hands dirty cleaning up the site of a new elementary school, they want to talk it over with USD 257 administrators. 

“They consider this a very high profile project and they want it to go well,” Dan Willis, school board president, told the board at a meeting Monday evening.

The soil cleanup at the school site is unique because it will target ground intended for public and educational use, rather than residential yards.
