Settlement Proposed for Restoration at Metal Bank Superfund Site in Pennsylvania
March 29, 2021 — From 1962 to 1985, Metal Bank of America Inc. owned and operated a salvage yard adjacent to the Delaware River. The facility recycled scrap metal and electrical transformers from various utility companies. The Environmental Protection Agency designated Metal Bank a Superfund site in 1983.
On March 17 a settlement was proposed to resolve liability for injuries to natural resources stemming from hazardous waste pollution at the Metal Bank Superfund site on the Delaware River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This settlement proposes $535,193 to fund projects that will help restore natural resources injured by pollution and compensate the public.
