ARTICLE EXCERPT: BNSF Railway will submit a plan to the Montana Department of Environmental Quality in the coming weeks to clean a section of contaminated ground in its Whitefish rail yard.
According to DEQ project officer Jessica Gutting, the cleanup is part of an ongoing project involving the BNSF yard in Whitefish that was first studied in the 1970s. Then, the yard was owned by Burlington Northern and, prior to that, the Great Northern Railway.
