Ohio To Pay $12 Million For Cleanup Of Old GM Sites

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — State officials say they have reached settlement agreements with the former General Motors Corp. to provide more than $12 million for environmental cleanup of two old GM sites in southwest Ohio.

State officials said Wednesday that the money will be used to clean up two Dayton-area sites connected to the recently bankrupt auto manufacturer. The money is in addition to $39 million in cleanup funds GM announced for Ohio in October.

The first agreement provides $6.7 million to cleanup a landfill near West Milton in Miami County where GM waste was discarded in the 1960s.

The second deal provides $5.3 to clean up a Dayton business park that was a GM plant site.

A U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York must approve the agreements.
