(WPRI) — The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it will be conducting “comprehensive reviews” of completed cleanup work at several “hazardous waste” sites in Rhode Island and Massachusetts this year.
The five-year review aims to assess previous remediation efforts of sites on the EPA’s National Priority List.
The following sites will be reviewed by EPA:
- Central Landfill (Johnston)
- Picillo Farm (Coventry)
- Western Sand & Gravel (Burrillville and North Smithfield)
- Davisville Naval Construction Battalion Center (North Kingstown)
- Iron Horse Park (Billerica)
- Plymouth Harbor CEC (Plymouth)
- Re-Solve, Inc. (Dartmouth)
- Shpack Landfill (Norton and Attleboro)
- Sullivan’s Ledge (New Bedford)
- Otis Air National Guard Base/Camp Edwards (Falmouth, Bourne, Sandwich and Mashpee)
“Throughout the process of designing and constructing a cleanup at a hazardous waste site, EPA’s primary goal is to make sure the remedy will be protective of public health and the environment, especially for communities that have been overburdened by pollution,” EPA New England Regional Administrator David Cash said.
