What:  Public hearing about the EPA's proposed cleanup plan for the St. Regis Paper Company Superfund Site in Cass Lake, MN

Where:  Cass Lake-Bena Elementary School, 15 4th Street NW, Cass Lake, MN

Why:  It is essential that the EPA hear from tribal people about the importance of cleaning up this toxic site and restoring the health of our sacred lands.   Public participation and public pressure is necessary to ensure they do the job right.   You do not need to be an expert or say anything fancy - just come and show support and tell them it is long past time to clean up this mess!

Background:  The St. Regis Paper Company Superfund Site is a former wood preserving facility that operated from 1957 to 1985 in the City of Cass Lake on the Leech Lake Reservation. Groundwater, surface water, sediment and soil on and near the site are contaminated as a result of the wood preserving process and waste disposal activities. While cleanup actions have occurred in the past, dioxin contamination remains on site in areas that are residential or easily accessed by people. For more information, please visit this EPA webpage.
