FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The CDC has finished collecting ground water samples at a former toxic sludge site in Dunbar.

The City of Fort Myers says it's relying on the State Department of Environmental Protection to coordinate the testing.

The city has been working to make sure the whole block is decontaminated before moving forward with plans with a storm water management area, a park, and residential development.
