SITE BACKGROUND

The Howe Valley Landfill site is located in Howe Valley, Kentucky. It includes an area used as an industrial waste landfill from 1967 to 1976. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1987 because of contaminated soil resulting from disposal operations. EPA, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP) and Dow Corning, the site’s lead potentially responsible party (PRP), investigated site conditions and took steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from m contamination. In 1994, the PRP removed all site-related contamination. In 1996, EPA took the site off the NPL. No additional Superfund actions at the site are required.
