FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved a cleanup plan for part of a former General Motors factory complex in Flint.

EPA said Wednesday the cleanup at the Southend portion of the 452-acre Buick City property will cost $5 million to $7 million.

Contractors hired by Motors Liquidation Corp., the site\'s owner, will do the job.

Margaret Guerriero of EPA\'s Land and Chemicals Division says most of the work will take place below the ground\'s surface or in isolated areas and won\'t interfere with any new business occupying the property.

EPA has identified areas of lead-contaminated soil and groundwater polluted by gasoline and hydraulic fluid, but says the contaminants haven\'t affected drinking water supplies or reached the Flint River.
