PHILADELPHIA -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has presented a bronze medal to Nancy Rios Jafolla of Gap, on the Chester/Lancaster County border, for her expertise in cleaning up a Superfund site.

Jafolla, a toxicologist who has worked at the EPA for 9-1/2 years, was honored for her superior technical and project management expertise that led to the safe cleanup of extremely hazardous site soils using onsite incineration at the Drake Superfund site.

"Nancy deserves applause for her hard work. Thanks to her, the mid-Atlantic region is a cleaner, safer place to live," said W. Michael McCabe, EPA’s mid-Atlantic regional administrator.
