Settlement reached in Hopewell Precision Superfund case

The EPA and Hopewell Precision, Inc. (“Hopewell”) entered into two consent orders this month, settling the Superfund statute civil lawsuit for $1.2 million. Hopewell is accused of, among other things, dumping hazardous solvent waste on the Hopewell Junction, NY Superfund site, “causing solvents… [to be] released into the environment, …[and leaching] into the groundwater … beyond the [Hopewell] properties, affecting drinking wells and homes in an area extending about a mile-and-a-half from the properties.” The EPA has spent millions since 2003 cleaning up the site.
