EPA Sues Denver, WM Over Superfund Site

Denver — The Washington, D.C.-based U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has sued the city of Denver and Houston-based Waste Management Inc., claiming they owe more than $12 million for cleanup costs associated with the Lowry Landfill, a Superfund site. The city and Waste Management agree that they owe money to the EPA for cleanup costs, but contend that it does not total $12 million.
