E. Helena ASARCO clean-up "plan" eerily resembles the El Paso TX Asarco clean-up plan

The E. Helena ASARCO clean-up "plan" eerily resembles the El Paso TX Asarco clean-up plan -- get an independent contractor who knows "nothing" about the illegal hazardous waste document, sell the land as soon as possible and pump the monies back into the clean-up.    What everyone forgets is the "smoking gun memo" (20010628) that shows how the EPA deliberately covered-up the Asarco contamination problem in El Paso/Corpus Christi (E. Helena also handled the secret wastes).   We have all been lied to, and they continue to lie to us.

Cindy Brooks is president of the Massachusetts-based Greenfield Environmental Trust Group, which is the custodial trust that’s temporarily taken possession of the Asarco land. They’re working with state, federal and local organizations to deal with soils contaminated by lead from the smelter, and also two underground plumes containing high levels of arsenic and selenium. The plan calls for the Asarco lands to be sold at some point, with proceeds returning to the trust to pay for environmental cleanup."
