The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) achieved some unique successes at the Fulton Terminals hazardous waste site in New York. After 35 years as a manufacturing facility, millions of gallons of waste oils and sludges were improperly stored here enroute to an incinerator. Tank leaks and spillage contaminated soil, ground water and the Oswego River. EPA's Superfund program: Settled with 59 of 60 hazardous waste contributors to conduct a comprehensive $4 million cleanup and reimburse EPA $500,000 for past costs; Created an unprecedented financial arrangement that guaranteed payments from both major and minor parties, ensuring the timely cleanup of the site; and Worked with area citizens to award a Technical Assistance Grant, ensuring their participation in the selection of the remedy and in the oversight of cleanup operations.
