I recall an article in the paper a few months back stating that (a company’s) permit for their proposed co-generation plant had recently expired.
I’m not here to bring up the debate on the plant as what’s done is done and it’s not here.
My concern is that since the push to drive out the plant, we still have chemically soaked railway ties sitting by the river leaching toxins into the ground and water.
It’s great that our city has people that care deeply about our environment and our well-being.
However, there was never an alternative proposed to getting rid of the ties. Why are these same environmentalists now content with these toxin-soaked ties sitting idly by the water?
Doesn’t that itself pose an environmental risk?
