My prediction: this will become a super fund site - which is paid for by our federal tax dollars.

Certainly a distinct possibility, Mark. However, and without knowing the details of the AFRG (?) agreement with NDEE to take responsibility for the cleanup, it is also possible that the companies whose contaminated seed was sent to AltEn could be liable as "arrangers" for the disposal of hazardous substances under CERCLA (the Superfund statute). There are several investigative paths that need to be examined before that determination can be made, but -- as I said -- it is a possibility.

I'm representing Stan Keiser, who's pond is contaminated from AltEn. Wanted to inform you that NDEE came out to take another sample of the surface water along with 4cm of sediment from the bottom of the pond and we were notified today that the pesticides were still in the water and found in the sediment. Another concern is that the drainage tube in the pond needs repaired. We believe the pond needs to be drained and cleaned to also be able to repair the tube.

can I get the information on the law suit.

Thank you for this informative presentation. At the tour of the land outside of the plant last summer, it was mentioned that the State of Nebraska must formally request help from the EPA. Has that happened, yet? If not, can individual Nebraskans appeal for the EPA involvement?

I had no idea they were still thumbing their nose at the rules. amazing what one can do when calling it "business." thanks so much. justice for all.

I am running for AG and would like to push for the suit.
Mark Welsch NE02
01:03:57
If there is political will to do this, I think the Unicameral could pass a law to hold the seed companies responsible for their products that have caused this problem. Can someone research that?
