EPA Confirms Newtown Creek Superfund Designation

The Environmental Protection Agency has announced that it will use the resources, oversight, and enforcement power of the Federal Superfund Program to clean Newtown Creek in a comprehensive and coordinated manner – complementing efforts initiated by the Newtown Creek Alliance.  NCA supports the EPA Superfund cleanup and expects that throughout the planning and remediation process EPA and its partners will take into account the concerns of existing industrial and manufacturing businesses on the Creek, help realize community-supported development projects that are already on the drawing board, and ensure enforcement of long-standing water quality and property remediation goals.
