The companies responsible for cleaning up the San Jacinto Waste Pits Superfund site asked to delay the final design of the remediation into 2021, according to an update provided by Jackie Young Medcalf of the Texas Health and Environmental Alliance Wednesday.

Medcalf, who has advocated for cleanup of the waste pits for many years, said she sent a letter to the EPA in support of the extension, as there are questions about the preliminary plans already presented that she would also like to see answered.
