 EPA APPROVES USE OF INCINERATION AT THE LINDSLEY LUMBER
 SUPERFUND REMOVAL SITE IN DANIA, FLA.
 ATLANTA, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today its approval for incineration of contaminated soil at the Lindsley Lumber Superfund Removal site in Dania, Fla.
 The approval is based on the agency's review of a trial burn conducted on-site during the month of November 1991. Incineration of the contaminated soil is expected to begin on Feb. 13, and will continue for 30 to 60 days.
 The trial burn test results indicate that the mobile incinerator is capable of successfully treating soils contaminated with pentachlorophenol. The trial burn also demonstrated that the dioxin and metals emissions from the unit did not exceed regulatory based standards for the incineration of hazardous wastes. EPA will require additional stack testing during start-up procedures to ensure that the operating conditions established for treatment are sufficient for proper thermal destruction of the wastes.
 Citizens interested in learning more about the Lindsley Lumber Removal Action may review the site administrative record located at the Dania Branch of the Broward County Library, 100 West Dania Beach Blvd., Dania, Fla., or the Broward County Library, Government Document Department, 100 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
 The Lindsley Lumber site is located at 1940 Griffin Road in Dania. The cleanup is being conducted by Lone Star Building Centers (Eastern), Inc. with EPA supervision. The process of treating lumber with wood-preserving chemicals resulted in the contamination of 5,000 cubic yards of soil and the contamination of groundwater.
