Selfridge, ND 58568

This time-critical removal action (TCRA) involves the demolition, cleanup and proper disposal of debris from five partially collapsed buildings known to contain friable asbestos. The buildings, located in the Town of Selfridge, have been abandoned, damaged by major fires and weathering, and vandalized. The Town of Selfridge is located in the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation. The Site was identified by the Town as a safety concern, posing a potential asbestos exposure threat to nearby residents, children, and community members.


EPA will begin work on July 26, 2022 and expects the cleanup to take approximately five weeks. All of the asbestos-containing debris will be properly cleaned up and disposed of at a landfill authorized to accept asbestos waste.
