MONTANA POLE AND TREATING PLANT: MORE CONSIDERATION AND EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVES
Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), 133 pp, 2018

The release by U.S. EPA of the Fourth Five-Year Review Report for the Montana Pole and Treating Plant in June 2017 and subsequent Montana DEQ public presentations in August and September evoked a comment letter to DEQ. The writer requested that DEQ validate, explain, and communicate to the public why dioxin cannot be "re-treated" and remediated to meet acceptable standards. In response, the DEQ prepared a four-part, in-depth report to illuminate the limitations and challenges found in screening and selecting dioxin remediation technologies used at wood treating sites such as Montana Pole. For the full report, see the Dioxins Memo Plus Exhibits at http://deq.mt.gov/Land/fedsuperfund/mtpole.
