The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a Five-Year Review of the Hranica Landfill Superfund Site located in Buffalo Township. EPA inspects sites regularly to ensure that cleanups conducted remain fully protective of public health and the environment. This site’s cleanup construction was completed in 1994, with several Five-Year Reviews following. The site was removed from the National Priorities List of the nation’s most hazardous waste sites in 1997. EPA’s most recent Five-Year Review in 2012 determined that the remedy continues to be protective in the long-term. Results of this current Five-Year Review will be available to the public by May 2017.
