The 12 proposed sites are located in seven states: Lava Cap Mine, Nevada City, Calif.; Omega Chemical Corp., Whittier, Calif.; Fridley Commons Park Well Field, Fridley, Minn.; Middlesex Sampling Plant, Middlesex, N.J.; United States Avenue Burn, Gibbsboro, N.J.; Hiteman Leather, West Winfield, N.Y.; Mohonk Road Industrial Plant, High Falls, N.Y.; Smithtown Ground Water Contamination, Smithtown, N.Y.; Tulsa Fuel and Manufacturing, Collinsville, Okla.; Tulsa Fuel and City of Perryton Well No. 2, Perryton, Texas; Many Diversified Interests Inc., Houston, Texas; and Pownal Tannery, Pownal, Vt.
