(Dallas, Texas – September 1, 2009) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $650,000 to the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED). These funds will be used by NMED for long-term cleanup activities at the North Railroad Avenue Plume Superfund site in Espanola, New Mexico. NMED proposes to continue the cleanup of chlorinated solvent contaminated ground water, and will assign a long-term contractor to implement the cleanup systems. These activities will restore the site to productive use.
