Long Island Gets a Little Cleaner (according to the EPA)

The SMS Instruments Superfund Site (Deer Park, NY) gets the "green thumbs up" from the EPA.

"After completing all the cleanup work needed to address contaminated soil and ground water, and assessing recent monitoring data, EPA has determined that the cleanup was successful and that the site no longer poses a significant threat to public health or the environment."

Considering how difficult it is for SF Sites to be removed from the NPL, the residents of Deer Park should be excited about this.

SMS Instruments Superfund Site had been on the NPL for over 2 decades.
