EPA Adds Three Indiana Sites to Superfund List

According to EPA, it has listed 1,694 sites since 1983 and has completed the cleanup of 1,147 of them, or 68 percent.

EPA has added Beck's Lake, a former automotive and hazardous waste dump in South Bend, Ind.; the Garden City Ground Water Plume in Garden City, Ind.; and the Keystone Corridor Ground Water Contamination site in Indianapolis to the Superfund National Priorities List.

The Superfund program works to remediate uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.

"EPA's Superfund cleanup program will make a visible impact in these communities and spur economic redevelopment."
