In a shocking revelation concerning the ongoing saga of the radioactive West Lake Landfill, yesterday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report it had suppressed for more than three years. In it, the National Remedy Review Board (NRRB), a peer-review group that oversees Superfund site clean-up plans, criticized the agency’s proposed 2008 decision to place a cap on top of the site and states in no uncertain terms that based on the data there is “accessible, highly toxic principal threat waste at this site.”
