MDEQ tests soil near Hattiesburg plant

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality ran tests in Hattiesburg near Hercules Chemical Plant.

M-DEQ provided oversight to Arcadias, a Baton Rouge Company, hired by Hercules to test soil within a mile radius for the plant.

The company placed several geophysical probes in the ground using an electrical line to detect the currents in the ground.

Each reading will give DEQ workers a 3D imagine of what is beneath the ground and rate the content of the soil.

The first phase of testing is due to be complete tomorrow.
