Superfund meeting to be held in Bristow


A public meeting will be held April 16 regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund site in Bristow, Oklahoma.

It will be held by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality and the EPA at the Bristow Library at 5:30 p.m.

Presentations will be made and information offered about the Superfund process, recent sampling events and future plans at the Wilcox Oil Company Superfund site.

Representatives of the two agencies will be on hand to answer questions. It will be a come-and-go event and the public will have the chance to talk directly with agency officials.

The Wilcox site was added to the National Priorities List on Dec. 12, 2013. It consists of the former Lorraine/Wilcox Refinery and was used by two different refineries with overlapping boundaries from 1915 to 1965. the two refineries cover about 150 acres.

The site also includes remnants of former oil refining operations and tank farms.
