Boston, MA - U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to start the clean up of superfund sites in Danvers, Ashland and Attleboro, Massachusetts.

“Thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we are now on track to expedite the clean up of superfund sites in Danvers, Ashland, and Attleboro, Massachusetts. I've been fighting for these critical investments to get hazardous chemicals out of our environment and protect the health of our communities,” said Senator Warren.

The $1 billion investment announced is the second wave of funding from the $3.5 billion allocated for Superfund cleanup work in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
