According to a notice in the Times Standard dated March 26, 2014,  the EPA has placed the Administrative Record for the Samoa Pulp Mill Site on view for public comment. The record includes all documents on which "the EPA has based its decision to conduct a removal action at the Site..." Action was taken by the E.P.A..because "EPA determined that actual or threatened releases of hazardous substances from the Site...may present an imminent and substantial endangerment to public health or welfare, or the environment."

The public has 30  days to comment on the records which are available at:

                   Eureka Main Library
                   1313 3rd Street
                   Eureka, CA 95501

                   Superfund Records Center
                   95 Hawthorne Street, Suite 4035
                   San Francisco, CA 94105

Written comments on the Administrative Record  should be sent to:

The records for the Samoa Pulp Mill were not available at the Eureka Public Library, and the phone number listed on the public notice did not answer. This is despite the fact that there was a 30 day comment period to get our reaction to the records and the action taken by the E.P.A. ?????????????????????????????????????????????????
