In an upcoming video, I’ll address the illegal tank of PCBs onsite. It’s a shell game that APES/ Clear Lube and ORRCO are playing. They point fingers at each other, but anyone who touched it is responsible according to federal regs. In the meantime, the vulnerable tank of PCBs sits openly at the plant near the Columbia River, not behind any containment berms that tank farms are supposed to have. In case of flooding, puncture, ground settling, natural disaster, the upcoming earthquake*, or even terrorism, the tank farm is vulnerable. (*As was mentioned in other public testimony at EQC meeting yesterday)
This is a huge risk to the public, the environment, the DEQ and EQC.
