SHEA-PORTER ANNOUNCES OTTATI-GOSS SITE TO RECEIVE CLEAN-UP FUNDS

NEW HAMPSHIRE – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter today announced that the Ottati-Goss site in Kingston will receive up to $5 million in funding to help clean-up hazardous waste. This funding is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

 

“This is another tangible example of how the Recovery package is helping New Hampshire residents,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. “It is essential to clean-up hazardous waste materials in New Hampshire and we will also create jobs with this funding.”

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is scheduled to announce $600 million in new funding for the clean-up of hazardous waste (Superfund) sites across the nation. The Federal Superfund program was created in 1980 to clean up uncontrolled hazardous waste sites that pose unacceptable risks to human health and the environment.
