EPA says BNSF Railway Company excavated and removed 36 cubic yards of soil near the cap boundary in 2009, as part of a project stabilizing the ground for a train pull-off. EPA cited BNSF for not labeling the dirt as polluted, then improperly storing and transporting it, all violations of federal hazardous waste law.
