GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The Environmental Protection Agency will soon be using new technology to get rid of groundwater contamination in Grand Island.

Thermal treatment of source contamination will take place at the Cleburn Street well superfund.

EPA workers say this will take less than six months.

Wells will heat the contamination, and when it is boiled this will help clean up the site.

Officials add during this process the public will be completely safe from these toxins.
