  • The EPA's contentious Superfund cleanup
    As the massive Bunker Hill Superfund cleanup in North Idaho winds down, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is preparing to expand its work even wider.

    EPA proposes to spend $359 million over 30 years to clean up mining wastes scattered from Mullan to as far west as Lake Roosevelt. A decision on that plan is expected next month.

    The Spokesman-Review examines the success of the Bunker Hill cleanup and explores the controversy surrounding the expanded cleanup plan.
