Presenter will outline pollution from park

The state recently reached a settlement with DeltaKeeper and must now control the contaminated water flowing off of Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley.

What’s in the runoff? How did it get there? How can it be removed?

Those are the topics of the next Wolf Creek Community Alliance meeting at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 23, at the NID Annex Building, 1036 West Main St., across from Lyman Gilmore school.

Presenter Carrie McNeil is the new director of DeltaKeeper (a Stockton-based Chapter of Baykeeper). She has worked as a legal consultant on lawsuits involving massive oil spills and toxic poisoning in Ecuador, and has helped developed laws involving abandoned mine cleanup, storm water pollution, metal contamination and nuclear waste. Currently, she is working on setting mercury standards in state waterways. For more information, call 272-2347.
