Maryland Dump Added To EPA Superfund List

DUNDALK, Md. (AP) — A former Dundalk dumping site has been added to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund priority list.

The EPA said Tuesday that the 2.5-acre Sauer Dump site is being added to its Superfund National Priorities List because it contains high concentrations of toxic chemicals, metals and pesticides. The agency says the site is one of nine nationwide being added to the list. The declaration allows the government to go after polluters and force them to pay for restoration.

The EPA says dumping occurred at the privately owned former marshland from the 1960s through the 1980s.

    Corrupt California DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.
    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.
    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.
