"EPA’s work at the facility is expected to continue over many months because of the size and complexity of the facility. Engagement will include continuing with sampling to determine areas in need of cleanup work, including excavation and removal of contaminated soil and liquids. EPA will also continue to keep the facility secure, maintain necessary systems, and take steps to winterize equipment and pipes."

The EPA has stated that any residual emissions are only steam, and are part of the shutdown process.
