The EPA finalized the deletion of a 10.7 acre parcel from the cleanup of the Industri-Plex Superfund Site in Woburn, Massachusetts on October 5.
The Woburn site is one of 27 across the country that the EPA is removing all or a portion from the Superfund National Priorities List. The EPA and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection determined that all the appropriate response actions at the parcel under the Superfund program have been completed.
It was also determined that no human and environmental health concerns remained on the parcel. Sites are deleted by the EPA from the National Priorities List when they achieve this state and cleanup is no longer necessary.
“EPA is very proud to be taking action to remove a portion of this Woburn, Massachusetts site from the federal Superfund list,” said Dennis Deziel, EPA New England Regional Administrator. “We are making good on our commitment to protect the people we serve and support local community revitalization by allowing land to be safely redeveloped for productive use when cleanup measures have been successfully completed.”
