EPA and Navajo Nation EPA have worked together to identify all the structures that should be assessed. Together we have assessed a total of 763 structures to date and continue to refer structures for more assessment and remediation. Residents will be notified of the results and possible remedial solutions if any are warranted. Superfund authority will be used to perform any remediation.
