Justice Dept., DEP sue over W. Pa. Superfund site

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The U.S. Department of Justice and the state Department of Environmental Protection have sued 17 companies in an attempt to recover some of the costs of cleaning up a Superfund site about 50 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

According to the complaint filed Friday, the site was run by Reactive Metals and Alloys Corp., or Remacor, which processed magnesium shavings and scrap until a 2005 fire destroyed facilities there.

Beginning in 2006, the DEP and the U.S. EPA removed six million pounds of the waste from the 45 acre site at a cost of about $10 million. The companies named in the lawsuit provided magnesium to Remacor.
