If you need documents that are not yet 508 compliant, please contact the National 508 Coordinator, Dorothy Semazzi, at Semazzi.Dorothy@epa.gov.
The 3-acre Distler Farm site is located in West Point, Kentucky. The site includes an area where Kentucky Liquid Recycling, Inc. disposed of industrial wastes in the 1970s. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from waste handling practices. EPA and the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KDEP) have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. By treating and monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and KDEP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
