TOWN OF SUMPTER - Laura Olah of Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger spoke to town of Merrimac officials about a recent state Department of Natural Resources decision to modify the way asbestos is handled at the facility's landfill.

At the March 6 town of Merrimac meeting, Olah said she supports the Army.

Installation Director Joan Kenney told board members the Army had been placing asbestos removed from buildings they were deconstructing in trenches, covering with 3 feet of ground, wet wood mulch and then compacting with a heavy machine.

Olah said asbestos is a known carcinogen which does not evaporate or dissolve, but it can remain suspended in the air for a long time.
