An End to 20 Years of Superfund Litigation

Remember Stringfellow Acid Pits? If you live in Southern California, at some point in the last 20 years, you probably learned about this Superfund site.

This week, the 20 years of litigation may have come to an end. The last $1.65 million in escrow was finally released. According to the USEPA, it will go to the overall Superfund, not individually to the Stringfellow site.

Just as a quickie refresher, over 34 million gallons of industrial waste, primarily from metal finishing, electroplating, and pesticide production were deposited in the Stringfellow evaporation ponds. Between 1975 and 1980, approximately 6.3 million gallons of liquid wastes and materials contaminated with pesticides were removed from the site. Guess where the rest of it went? Into the air and groundwater.

How'd you like to have a site like that named after you?
