The Clinch River Corp. site, once a paper mill on the Emory River in Harriman, has been named to the National Priorities List of Superfund sites by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
That means federal help with cleaning up hazardous wastes left behind.
The site had been recommended previously, but not officially placed on the list.
An EPA news release said Superfund is a federal program “that investigates and cleans up the most complex, uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous waste sites in the country.”
