Annotation:
According to the article, Montana’s Chief Executive, Becky Guay, expressed dismay with Arco-British Petroleum’s (“Arco”) voluntary dust control plan to clean Opportunity Ponds, which is the “toxic waste repository for the Nation’s largest Superfund site.” Specifically, she noted that Arco’s plan did nothing to fix “problems related to respiratory health concerns, diminished property values, and hazardous driving conditions from blowing dust.” Accordingly, she drafted a letter to the Governor, among other others, that demanded action at Opportunity Ponds. The letter, which noted a lack of oversight and enforcement at the site, called for various improvements to the plan, including the inclusion of environmental justice principles. Article taken from EJ in the News.
