Pollution from explosions of hazardous waste is released into open air 28 miles from Natchitoches—this includes some of the worst poisons on the planet.
Brenda Vallee, Director of Central Louisiana Coalition for a Clean and Healthy Environment, will discuss ways to work successfully with the state Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to protect your community.
Ms. Vallee is the featured speaker at Natchitoches League of Women Voters meeting, Monday, October 29, 6 p.m. at Hana’s Annex, 750 Front Street. All interested people are invited to this meeting.
Ms. Vallee leads the Colfax community group that works to stop the pending 10-year DEQ permit request from Clean Harbors, Colfax to open burn 3 million pounds a year of explosive toxic hazardous waste.
Open burning of hazardous waste by private companies is outlawed all over the U.S, but this explosive poison is brought to Clean Harbors, Colfax from Super Fund sites, military bases, and a wide range of companies. Clean Harbors current permit allows over 500,000 pounds of toxic waste to explode in Colfax each year.
