From our allies at Headwaters Defense:

Hazardous areas near the community of Minden in Fayette County, WV have been proposed for the National Priorities List of Superfund Sites by the USEPA. The Shaffer Equipment site and sections of Arbuckle Creek are contaminated with toxic PCB’s. If designated as a federal Superfund Site, the polluted areas will be eligible for long-term cleanup by the federal government.

Now, the EPA needs to hear from you! Official designation as a Superfund Site can only happen after a public comment period. Click here to send comments to the EPA recommending areas surrounding Minden be added to the National Priorities List of Superfund Sites. Comments are due November 13, 2018.
