Why allow waste?
It has come to my attention that the Department of Environmental Quality is allowing North Dakota to dump its radioactive oil waste near Glendive, Montana.
I am appalled that our state government would agree to do such a thing. What is the DEQ thinking? What good would it do? Weighing the risk/rewards leans heavily against allowing North Dakota to dump its waste here. Think about the risk of water contamination. Think about the air downwind. What if the wind changes? Is it worth it? How much is the state getting paid if anything?
You have free articles remaining.
I do not know the scientific reasoning behind this decision but anything with the words radioactive oil waste cannot be good for people.
I suggest the DEQ cancel whatever contract they have with North Dakota or run the risk of being ridiculed with the name Department of Environmental Degradation.
