The EPA has plans to propose a legal decision about clean-up of the "Upland"
portion of the Superfund Site in 2007. Currently, only a small part of the
historical area of ARCO operations has been investigated and slated for

areas are identified, investigated, and made part of the cleanup.
LCP Chemicals Superfund Site has been the location of a refinery, paint
manufacturing, electrical generating, and most recently a Chloro-Alkali
chemical manufacturing plant. During the long history of operations, the
plant extended far beyond the current boundaries of the Superfund Site.

assure all toxic waste is cleaned up. To date, former areas of operation
that extended past where Habersham Street is located today have not been
included in what is now called the LCP Chemicals Superfund Site.

articles, make copies of them, and put them into the book.
