The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday that a third 20,000-gallon tank containing treated toxins has been approved for release into the Valatie Kill from a newly completed water treatment plant at the Dewey Loeffel Toxic Landfill federal Superfund site in Nassau.

The first two tanks were approved for content discharge in January. Samples taken from the 20,000-gallon tanks of treated groundwater and leachate were below EPA standards for discharging into the Valatie Kill, said EPA Region 2 Deputy Director of Public Affairs Mary Mears.
