Much easier said than done for sure. I worked in/on an old dumping site in the 96/97 in the
Livingston area (yes, I had a Hazwhopper 40 certificate) and getting all the stuff out of the
ground is way more difficult. Given the hazardous cleaning chemicals removing the from any
ground water is extremely difficult. I am sure BNSF means well and Ole Daddy War Bucks
Warren sure has the deep pockets to do the jon the best they can….but, reality is…the situation
will never be pristine again.
The trains helped Whitefish get on the map & ages old contaimination are very hard to
eliminate…and they don’t get gone over night. I seriously doubt the very small footage
described in the story….as some 75 feet in diameter….best I can say…is any work/cleanup is
good for all.
