Environmental Justice

Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people ..... with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.

EPA has this goal for all communities and persons across this Nation. It will be achieved when everyone enjoys the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making process to have a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work.

Since plant run-off was occurring (videoed) has the DEQ taken any soil samples before allowing the canal to be cleaned? Seems that would be the logical thing to do before depositing the dredged material on the bank. If it was found to be contaminated, it should of been deposited in the proper landfill.
