Bringing in the big guns in DePue
DEPUE — A former DePue native is continuing his efforts to get the Superfund site in DePue cleaned up.
On Thursday, Ron Actis said the Inspector General of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been asked to investigate EPA Region 5 for its failure to oversee and enforce a 1995 Interim consent order pertaining to the Superfund site at the former New Jersey Zinc/Mobil Chemical plant in DePue. The Office of the Inspector General is charged with overseeing the agency’s programs to ensure that requirements are met in Superfund cleanups.
Actis, a native of DePue and Michigan-based consultant who helped form the DePue Action Committee for cleanup of the site, is now working independently on the cleanup cause. He said the purpose of the request is to help the people of DePue make their case about the situation and its negative impact on the village’s economy and residents’ property values.
