Ford: Town should pay almost $17 million toward toxic cleanup
(wgvu) - Ford wants the federal government to force
a New Jersey city to pay (m) millions of dollars toward cleaning up
a toxic waste dump.
The automaker says Ringwood is violating a federal order that it
help the automaker.
Ford's attorney says the town has accrued penalties under the
order of nearly 17 (m) million dollars.
Ringwood officials say that figure isn't fair. The city says
it's working with the Dearborn automaker to come up with an
appropriate sum.
During the 1960s and early 1970s, Ford dumped paint sludge and
other toxic waste in an area near the New York border.
Ford cleaned it up. But residents complained of paint sludge
left in the open.
The site last year was put back on the Superfund list. That
ranks the country's worst dump sites.
