An agreement has been reached for the Valleycrest Landfill in Old North Dayton. The agreement is for a $35 million cleanup that will be part of the EPA’s Superfund program. Already, the EPA has removed 43,000 drums of hazardous waste and about 65,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil. Unfortunately, around 2,500,000 cubic yards of bad soil remain. Hopefully, these additional funds will not only speed up the process for the cleanup but also bring it to a conclusion.
