A federal agency proposed granting superfund status to an area of Billings, Mont. contaminated by dry cleaning chemicals.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Sept. 1 announced it’ll recommend a roughly 855 acre area in Billings be added to the National Priorities List as a federal Superfund site.
Officials say the plume could affect around 1,100 structures in central and downtown Billings.
EPA project manager Roger Hoogerheide says if the site wins federal superfund status the agency will conduct indoor air investigations.
