2008 Five-year review

EPA Reviewing Byron Salvage Yard Superfund Site

Byron, Illinois
June 2008

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is reviewing the Byron Salvage Yard Superfund site to ensure the cleanup continues to protect people and the environment. The Superfund law requires reviews at least every five years at sites where the cleanup is complete but remains on-site.

EPA, in consultation with Illinois EPA, will evaluate site documents, results of periodic inspections of the cover system and fence, and results of periodic ground-water testing. Should we find any areas of potential concern, we will work with the company responsible for the cleanup to fix them. EPA will issue a report on the five-year review by August 2008. This is the second five-year review for this site.
(First five-year review published January 2004)
