Plan in Place to Clean Up Bear Creek Superfund Site

The Environmental Protection Agency plans to clean up the Bear Creek Superfund site in Eastern Baltimore County over the next three years.

But residents who live nearby as well as environmentalists are concerned the cleanup project might not work and could do damage.

For decades, dangerous chemicals, including cancer-causing PCBs, were dumped into Bear Creek from Bethlehem Steel, which for a time was the largest steel producer in the world.
