I urge everyone to read Libby, Montana’s The Western News May 8, 2015 article – EPA releases proposal plan – (continues on page 7A). There is hope that this cleanup effort will surpass previous efforts. In 2006 the EPA raised the standard to a higher testing criteria: from a 5-point composite sample to a 30-point composite sample. With this more thorough sample, the finest particles of tremolite, for example, should not slip by unnoticed. The EPA estimates that 100 previously examined sites will be re-examined. This is good news for Libby, a small city that deserves a final, accurate cleanup report to show the world that the nightmare is finally over. The illnesses go on for many, but there is a brighter future ahead.
