This means that they are given the same level of concern as a dry cleaner or other small commercial facility. The number of fines and lawsuits connected with the Samoa Pulp Mill site would seem to argue that this site is much more toxic than a dry cleaner. Indeed it has been a major source of pollution.
A level 1 site supposedly does not pose an immediate human health threat and does not extend off the site. Has anyone tested the ground around the mill site.
Also, a category 1 site has generated little or no public interest. This one is probably true. We cannot help but wonder why. There certainly was a lot of interest when the mill was planning to open.
When the mill announced that it was not going to open,it disappeared from the public consciousness as if it never was. ????????????
