At a public meeting held on Aug. 23 in Anna’s Retreat, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided information about a proposal to improve cleanup efforts at the Tutu Wellfield Superfund Site on St. Thomas and took comments from the public. The EPA has proposed a plan that would modify current cleanup activities at the Tutu Wellfield Superfund Site. Previous industrial and commercial activities at the site contaminated the soil and groundwater with chlorinated volatile organic compounds. The EPA’s proposed action expands and enhances the groundwater cleanup system that is currently operating at the site.
