A public meeting on the Montana Pole Treatment Plant Superfund cleanup starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Butte-Silver Bow Public Library, 226 W. Broadway.
Over 200,000 cubic yards of contaminated soils have been excavated from the former wood-treatment facility that operated along Silver Bow Creek. State and federal environmental officials began work at the site nearly 15 years ago, and the project is expected to continue into the coming years.
The public can hear about the project’s history and ongoing efforts to remediate toxic soils and treat groundwater in the area during Tuesday’s meeting.
For details, or if you are interested in serving on a committee being formed to explore the potential use of the site, contact Janice Hogan at the Citizens Technical Environmental Committee at 723-6247, or ButteCTEC@ Hotmail.com.
