Cleanup funds possible for south Macon industrial properties

New test results for contamination on south Macon industrial properties show enough pollution to make them contenders for the Superfund list, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

These properties include Armstrong World Industries and two sites where a naval ordnance factory and associated landfill were once located.

The factory was operated by the Navy during World War II and by defense contractors for decades afterward, before a seat-belt company called Allied Chemical Corp. gave part of the property its current name. The land is now owned by the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority, the Macon Water Authority and about 20 private businesses in the Allied Industrial Park.
