Church pastor asks city to investigate soil contamination Neal Wagner Columbus Commercial Dispatch (MS) August 5, 2009Columbus officials during the next few weeks will consider working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to determine if a black substance discovered near a local church is a toxic industrial byproduct.
The announcement came after the Rev. Steve Jamison, pastor of the Marantha Faith Center on Waterworks Road, spoke with the Columbus City Council during a Tuesday night meeting.
During the meeting, Jamison and Tennie White, president of the Troubleshooters consultant company in Jackson, requested the city ask the EPA to thoroughly investigate the area around the church for creosote contamination.
