Six companies considered potentially responsible for a large-scale environmental cleanup in northwest Indiana have been ordered to get to work on remediation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The work involves soil and indoor dust cleanup at the USS Lead Superfund site in East Chicago.
The administrative orders follow an announcement earlier this month that the site and 20 others throughout the country would be "targeted for immediate and intense attention" by the EPA. The agency says potentially responsible parties include: USS Lead, Atlantic Richfield Co., DuPont, Chemours, United States Metals Refining Co. and Mueller Industries.
