POTENTIALLY RESPONSIBLE PARTIES BEGIN CLEANUP OF HAZARDOUS WASTE CONTAMINATION AT THE BARNWELL COUNTY LANDFILL IN BARNWELL, S.C. ATLANTA, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that three potentially responsible parties (PRPs), Barnwell County, Ducane Corporation and Riteway Machine, have begun a Superfund cleanup at the Barnwell County Landfill site in Barnwell, S.C. The initial phase of the cleanup will include the excavation and stockpiling of drums, contaminated soil and debris, and is expected to be completed in three months. Drums containing paint wastes, methyl ethyl ketone and xylene were buried in the landfill in the 1970s and 1980s. Because the PRPs are financing this phase of the cleanup under EPA oversight, federal funds will not be needed. This site is not on the National Priorities List (NPL) of hazardous waste sites. -0- 12/4/91 /CONTACT: Charles Stevens, on-scene coordinator, or Michael Henderson, 404-347-3931, or Carl Terry, 404-347-3004, all of the United States Environmental Protection Agency/ CO: United States Environmental Protection Agency; Barnwell County; Ducane Corporation; Riteway Machine ST: South Carolina IN: CHM SU: EXE
