EPA Missed Ford Contamination
(2007-09-27)
(wgvu) - TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A federal report faults the Environmental
Protection Agency for its investigation of toxic contamination in
the northern New Jersey city of Ringwood by automaker Ford.
The report stops short of blaming specific employees or
recommending criminal or disciplinary action.
The report says the agency failed to push for a wider
investigation into how much toxic paint sludge was in the area and
didn't keep the community informed about what was going on.
Residents in the Ringwood area have blamed the paint sludge for
health problems including certain cancers and skin diseases.
The site is among the country's worst environmental dump sites.
