The city has released a plan for mitigating the Gellman-Pall dioxane-contaminated groundwater. The proposal has raised concern in the neighborhood around Dolph because the plan is to discharge the treated wastewater (including residual dioxane and bromide) into First Sister Lake. Concern exists about the overall impact of a large water discharge into the lake and surrounding wetlands, and more specifically about the chemical content of the wastewater. If anyone on the list has expertise related to these issues, and capacity to analyze the proposal, the neighborhood would much appreciate some scientifically-competent, unbiased input. I can send more information to anyone interested in looking at it. Thank you.
