VALLEY, Neb. (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to add a Valley intersection to its list of Superfund national priorities.

The intersection announced Wednesday is located at Old Highway 275 and 288th Street. The designation notifies the public that the EPA believes a site requires further study and cleanup.

The EPA says the site consists of contaminated groundwater which has affected one Pines Public Water Supply well and four private wells.

Adding the intersection to the agency’s national priority list makes it eligible for federal money to investigate and address site contamination. It also guarantees the public an opportunity to participate in the cleanup decisions.
