Solar Panels to Power Cleanup at one of the Most Toxic Sites in U.S.
SAN FRANCISCO – EPA’s Jared Blumenfeld and U.S. Congressman Mike Thompson hosted a press conference and media tour in February 2011 to provide details for recent exciting energy conservation and cleanup accomplishments at the Frontier Fertilizer Superfund Site in Davis, California. Blumenfeld and Thompson joined the Mayor Pro Tem of Davis and key state and local partners to reveal details for how EPA has infused a “green” foundation into much needed infrastructure improvements at the site while simultaneously speeding the cleanup remedy by more than 150 years.
February 2011 marked the two year anniversary of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 being signed into law by President Barack Obama. In the two years since President Obama signed the Recovery Act, EPA has made tremendous progress in creating green jobs and improving the quality of public health and the environment through projects supported by Recovery Act funding.
This Superfund Cleanup is an innovative partnership between the California Department of Toxic Substances Control, Regional Water Quality Control Board and the Frontier Fertilizer Superfund Oversight Group.
