Announcements and Key Topics
On August 21, 2018, EPA removed the Ordnance Works Disposal Areas Superfund Site in Morgantown, West Virginia from the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL). Sites are deleted from the NPL by the EPA, with state concurrence, when all site cleanup goals have been met; no further response is necessary; and the remedy is protective of public health and the environment in the long-term. The Ordnance Works Disposal Areas site was once contaminated with hazardous chemicals due to past industrial practices. Since then, an extensive cleanup, continuous operation and maintenance of the remedy, and regular sampling activities have confirmed that public health and the environment are protected in the long-term.
Community involvement is the process of engaging in dialogue and collaboration with community members. The goal of Superfund community involvement is to advocate and strengthen early and meaningful community participation during Superfund cleanups.
