Hope Superfund site off national priorities list

Written by

HOPE - An Environmental Protection Agency Superfund site in Hope has reached an important milestone. It has been taken off the agency's national priorities list.

The Union Chemical Company site was added to the Superfund priority list in 1989.


Since then, the site has been the subject of investigations and cleanup activities, according to the EPA.


The EPA and the state of Maine have determined that no further cleanup is needed for the site. Long-term monitoring will continue.
