The state Environment Department is expected to talk about chemical testing and cleanup efforts for a decades-old chemical spill in the heart of Albuquerque on Tuesday. The Laun-Dry Supply Company spill is on a neighborhood meeting agenda.

The chemical distribution business leaked toxic solvents near downtown Albuquerque over the course of several decades. NMED is expected to present results from testing in homes where people might be breathing in toxic gases from the spill.
