 THE MARYLAND ASSEMBLIES SITE IN PERRY, FLA.
 ATLANTA, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will begin a Superfund cleanup at the Maryland Assemblies site in Perry, Fla. during the week of Dec. 2, 1991. The cleanup will include controlled detonation of unstable incendiary compounds and unexploded ordnance. The initial phase of the cleanup is expected to be completed in one week. An estimated $200,000 has been budgeted for the entire cleanup.
 Detonation work will be conducted by U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal personnel. EPA and its contractors will support the Navy's activities and sample drums, soil and other potentially contaminated materials.
 Maryland Assemblies is bankrupt and hazardous materials and explosives have been abandoned at the site.
 The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), also known as "Superfund" and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) authorize EPA to respond to actual or threatened releases of hazardous substances that may endanger public health, welfare or the environment. This site is not on the National Priorities List (NPL) of hazardous waste sites.
