In an article published by the Associated Press over a year ago, a site at LBSRP was serving as a dumpsite for potentially toxic chemicals. Now, a year later, the site is still there and the park is waiting on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deal with the problem.

“Pretty soon we will start work on (the site,)” he added.
