Madison County DDT Contamination
Misrepresented by EPA Officials

BEST/MATRR member Karen Jones
leads a Triana community effort
to hold EPA accountable and
push for further cleanup
of the Superfund Site
near the town of Triana.

Triana is a largely black community
adjacent to Redstone Arsenal
on the Tennessee River
in Madison County, Alabama.
The DDT contamination
of the Triana water supply
was identified in 1977, and
cleanup efforts substantially improved,
but did not eliminate, DDT and
chemical contamination in the area.

The predominance of health issues
in the community persists,
and the EPA appears to be misrepresenting
the levels of serious pollution.
Fish and water warnings
need to be posted.
This is an environmental justice issue,
and we will persist until appropriate
action is taken.
