With support provided by Skeo Solutions, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published an Annual Report summarizing the activities of the Agency’s Superfund program in the Rocky Mountains and Plains Region in fiscal year 2011.
The report highlights EPA’s response to environmental emergencies of national significance, including the Yellowstone River Oil Spill in Montana and the historic flooding of the Souris River in North Dakota. EPA Region 8 also continued the long-term cleanup of some of the most complex, challenging sites in the nation, such as the Libby Asbestos site in Montana.
In addition, the report explores communities’ efforts to revitalize formerly contaminated lands and how innovative approaches are enabling green remediation, ecological revitalization and renewable energy opportunities in the region. The report also takes a closer look at the beneficial effects of the Superfund program.
