New batch of land clean ups announced

Sites polluted through illegal drug manufacturing and heavy industry are to be cleaned after cash from a remediation scheme was released.

America’s Environmental Protection Agency has announced that more than $730,000 of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds are to be spent on sites in Iowa, Montana and Nebraska.

The areas, known in the United States as region seven, include urban, rural and tribal lands which have suffered from deprivation and crime.
