The Columbia Falls Aluminum Co. will have an open house and driving tour of the old plant site off Aluminum Drive Sept. 18.

Today itís a large gravel pad and the company, along with the Environmental Protection Agency, are working on plans to eventually clean up the site, under the federal Superfund Act.
