CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - State regulators have set up a website about the cleanup process at the site of last year’s chemical spill.

On Tuesday, the Department of Environmental Protection announced the site dedicated to Freedom Industries’ participation in the Voluntary Remediation Program.

DEP says no site cleanup plan has been submitted or approved yet.

The spill in January 2014 spurred a tap-water ban for 300,000 people for days.

A remedial action work plan is due first quarter 2016 and the entire project should be complete later that year, possibly earlier.

DEP stresses there cannot be any risk of the spilled chemical getting into the water supply again.

Program documents can also be viewed at the Kanawha County Clerk’s Office or DEP’s Charleston headquarters.
