Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named twelve new hazardous waste sites to the National Priorities List (NPL) for cleanup under the Superfund program.  The list includes sites across the United States, including a former wood treating facility in Yadkinville, NC and an electroplating facility in Vincent, Alabama.  EPA has also proposed to add another eight sites to the NPL.  EPA has determined that these sites pose public health and environmental risks.  For a complete list of these sites, see the EPA’s press release.
