USA: EPA Adds Three Indiana Sites to Superfund Cleanup List

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has added three contaminated sites in Indiana to the Superfund National Priorities List: Beck’s Lake, a former automotive and hazardous waste dump in South Bend; the Garden City Ground Water Plume in Garden City; and the Keystone Corridor Ground Water Contamination site in Indianapolis.

Superfund is the federal program used to investigate and remediate uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.

“Cleaning up these highly-contaminated sites will improve public health and the environment for the people who live in South Bend, Garden City and Indianapolis,” said Region 5 Administrator Susan Hedman. “EPA’s Superfund cleanup program will make a visible impact in these communities and spur economic redevelopment.”

Since 1983, EPA has listed 1,694 sites on the National Priorities List. To date, cleanups have been completed at 1,147, or 68 percent of these Superfund sites.
