USA: EPA Prepares Glen Cove Cleanup Scheme

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a cleanup plan to address contaminated ground water and soil at the Mattiace Petrochemical Co., Inc. Superfund site in Glen Cove, New York.

The plan proposed yesterday amends a prior long-term cleanup plan and is intended to improve the effectiveness of ground water treatment at the site.

The estimated cost of this proposed final phase of the cleanup is approximately $11.2 million.

“The EPA has been working for years to protect the health of people who live near this contaminated property and the cleanup plan proposed yesterday advances that essential work,” said EPA Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck.

The EPA will hold a public meeting on April 28, 2014 to explain the proposed scheme and is encouraging public comments. The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. at Glen Cove City Hall, 9 Glen Street, Glen Cove, New York.

Comments will be accepted until May 19.
