3 Million Gallons of Dangerous Chemicals Cleared From Samoa Pulp Mill
Says Congressman Huffman
by Kym Kemp Lost Coast Outpost (CA) September 10, 2014Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) announced today that the final shipment of some three million gallons of dangerous chemicals has left the former Samoa Pulp Mill site, in Humboldt County, Calif., drastically reducing a potentially catastrophic environmental threat to Humboldt Bay.
Huffman praised the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Coast Guard and Coast Seafoods for their rapid response to what was a potential disaster. Last summer, EPA was approached by the Harbor District about millions of gallons of highly caustic pulping liquors abandoned by previous owners in tanks that were inappropriate for storage and actively leaking.
