U.S. EPA SEEKS COST RECOVERY FOR SOUTH BAY SUPERFUND SITES

 U.S. EPA SEEKS COST RECOVERY FOR SOUTH BAY SUPERFUND SITES
 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) today announced it is filing suit in federal court against four companies to seek payment of $800,000 in past costs incurred by the agency at three South Bay Superfund sites. The companies are: Intel Corp., Kim Camp III, CTS Printex Inc., and ADN Corp.
 "Despite the general cooperation of these companies in their investigation and cleanup operations, U.S. EPA has been unable to reach an agreement on reimbursement of its past costs or to obtain a commitment from the parties to pay future oversight costs as required by law," said Jeff Zelikson, director for U.S. EPA's hazardous waste management division. "For most of these sites, cleanup activities have been ongoing for many years and the collection of past costs is a necessary step in closing out activities at these sites."
 The Superfund law requires full reimbursement of past costs associated with site cleanup activities where financially viable parties are present.
 Over the past six months, U.S. EPA has received payment or reached an agreement for payment of costs totalling $3.7 million with 11 companies representing 14 other sites in the South Bay.
