The headquarters of American Media Inc. in Boca Raton, Fla. have became the nation's latest Superfund site as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launches its plan to rid the building of anthrax. This is the first civilian bio-contamination cleanup the EPA has ever handled. Multiple agencies, many from the military, will help in the effort. They will rely on more than 50 experts in biological weapons defense, chemistry, hazardous materials response and others. No cost estimates have been made for the cleanup.
