EPA Investigates Gulfco Marine Contamination Site
In Freeport, TX
December 29, 2006
The EPA has already found dangerously high levels of 12 different chemicals in its testing efforts, including pesticides.
The area, formerly home to a barge cleaning facility, was deemed highly contaminated in 2003 by the EPA and designated for a Superfund cleanup.
Back then, the cleanup effort reportedly came to a standstill because the agency could not identify who was liable for the cleanup costs.
Since then, according to The Facts, the responsible parties were determined to be Gulfco Restoration Group, LDL Limited, Sequa Corp. and Dow Chemical Company.
Groundwater sampling is scheduled to continue at other sites, to determine how far the contamination has migrated.
