Press Release

Washington, DC— On Friday, May 31 at 10:30 a.m., Congressman Frank Pallone (NJ-06) will join U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Regional Administrator Judith A. Enck, and Old Bridge Mayor Owen Henry to make an announcement at the Raritan Bay Slag Superfund Site.

As a result of urging by Pallone, the Raritan Bay Slag site was placed on the Superfund National Priorities List in 2009.  Pallone has long prioritized the cleanup of this lead contaminated site so the local community may once again access the waterfront area without worry of health hazards. Lead is a toxic metal that can be particularly dangerous to children’s developmental health.

In October 2012, EPA held a public meeting for comments on their proposed plan to clean up the site.
