EPA says Ford Motor Co. likely to remove arsenic-laced soil in Ringwood by next month

After a four-year battle, Ford Motor Co. is likely to remove by next month arsenic-laced soil found in Ringwood State Park that was attributed to paint sludge the company dumped decades ago, an EPA Project Manager said in a report in the Record.

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency is demanding that Ford remove the contamination as part of its Superfund cleanup, according to the report. Since the discovery of the arsenic in January 2006, Ford had denied it came from liquid pain sludge dumped 40 years ago, but testing by Ford didn’t support that conclusion, the report said. EPA Project Manager Joseph Gowers said the EPA and Ford are working out details of the plan, which will cost $1 million, and once that is done, removal will begin immediately.
