EPA reaches accord? on Superfund site

Posted 1/9/12

PROVIDENCE – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has reached a settlement with respect to the Davis Liquid Waste Superfund Site in Smithfield.

According to a news release, the settling defendants will undertake groundwater cleanup at the site and also will be financially responsible for 100 percent of future response costs, including oversight costs.

The agreement was signed by multiple Settling Defendants, the EPA, the state of Rhode Island and the United States Department of Justice.

The defendants include: Ashland Inc.; the Black and Decker Corp., FKI Industries Inc., Morton International LLC, Rohm and Haas Co., and Life Technologies Corp.

In 1992, the Office of Attorney General on behalf of the state initiated a suit against William Davis requiring the removal of millions of tires that had been disposed at the site as far back as the 1970s. Although the last of the tires were removed in 2000, the state’s attorneys general have remained committed to the remediation of remaining environmental hazards. •
