Sampling results will be ready next week on a white powder and residue that's been bothering some Montgomery County residents. A Department of Environmental Conservation field team was in the town of Florida last week to test it.

As NewsChannel 13 reported last week, the white powder and residue is near the construction site for a new Dollar General distribution center on Route 5S in the town of Florida.
