    EPA Takes Action Against Norfolk Southern to Assist in East Palestine Cleanup Operation

    Responsibility for cleanup expenses lies with the train company.

    Efforts are underway to clean up the aftermath of a significant train derailment near East Palestine, Ohio. The incident resulted in the release of harmful chemicals into the environment, necessitating the evacuation of local residents. Despite local efforts, the cleanup is expected to be a lengthy and challenging process.

    To streamline the cleanup process and hold them accountable, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated that Norfolk Southern, the train operator involved in the derailment, cover all costs associated with the cleanup as a result of the incident.

    “Norfolk Southern will not evade responsibility for the mess they have caused,” stated EPA Administrator Michael Regan, emphasizing that the EPA would enforce compliance using its full authority.

    Officials from Norfolk Southern will be obliged to participate in local discussions, assist in the cleanup of polluted areas, and compensate the EPA for any services necessary during the operation. Regan remarked, “Although this order cannot erase the ordeal that families in this community have endured, it represents a step towards obtaining the justice needed for the harm caused by Norfolk Southern.”
