Coast Guard yard due on Superfund list

September 05, 2002|By Rona Kobell | Rona Kobell,SUN STAFF

The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to announce today that it is adding the Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay to its Superfund list of the nation's cleanup priorities.

The listing, which has been expected since the EPA recommended adding the site to Superfund last September, will ensure the yard undergoes a thorough study to determine the scope of the contamination, which dates to World War II.

The 113-year-old Curtis Bay yard is in northern Anne Arundel County, six miles southeast of downtown Baltimore.
