Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe (R) said Congress will spend $45 million to clean up the Tar Creek Superfund site.

The funds will be used by the University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality. They will focus work on two towns that are considered the most affected by mine waste in Tar Creek.

Most of the land in Tar Creek is owned by Quapaw tribal members.
