Because of the potential high impact on neighborhoods and questions of efficacy, a group of residents have written a position statement urging more aggressive clean-up at the plume source and high concentration areas up to and including Maple Village rather than neighborhoods inside the city. The DEQ is accepting public comments through tomorrow, August 16.
