Union City Cemetery - Indiana: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:32 by admin
Due to elevated PCB levels in the soil and water, crews are now cleaning up the Union City Cemetery in Union City, Indiana. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designated the Union City Cemetery and Harter Park / Little Mississinewa River a Superfund site, entitling the area to federal assistance. The cleanup began in mid-July and completion is expected sometime in September 2001.

PCBs escaping from a former Westinghouse facility and the Sheller Globe property contaminated soil and water in the surrounding area. Elevated PCB levels were first discovered in 1990.

Workers will remove soil in order to bring PCB levels back to within federally-mandated standards. If soil removal attempts are unsuccessful, the area may be capped with a synthetic liner.

See your doctor if you live or work in this area and have experienced serious health problems. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
