EPA Assessment of Hidden Lane Landfill in Virginia Begins

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that it will begin a detailed assessment of the Hidden Lane Landfill, the Connection reports. From 1971 to 1984, Hidden Lane Landfill operated as an unregulated, privately-owned dump in Sterling, Va. In 2005, testing revealed that nearby wells were contaminated with TCE (trichloroethylene). TCE is a known carcinogen that is also linked to neurological problems, cardiac problems, coma and birth defects.

Last September, the EPA proposed adding Hidden Lane Landfill to its Superfund National Priorities List. We will be keeping an eye on this story for developments.
