The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released its proposed plan to remediate the San Jacinto River Waste Pits Superfund site on Galveston Bay. The plan recommends a complete removal of the dioxin contaminated material from the site. “We are proposing to remove contaminated material and provide the community with the most protective cleanup plan for the San Jacinto waste pits site” stated the EPA Regional Administrator in a press release.
The EPA has extended the public comment period on their proposed plan to remove the wastes until January 12th.
CCA Texas has sent out action alert emails, encouraging membership to show support for the EPA’s proposed plan by submitting a public comment. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to submit your comments to EPA by the deadline. It will only take you a few seconds to complete!
