Caption: Dead swamp at the Old Inger Oil Refinery, Darrow, Ascension Parish, Louisiana. This site was placed on the EPA's Superfund list (meaning that it is slated for extensive, long-term cleanup) in 1983. Soil, waste oil sludges and on-site surface water were contaminated by VOCs, PAHs and heavy metals. As of 2008 the site was cleaned up.
