Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Vermont towns to decide fate of asbestos mines

Two towns in Vermont will be voting whether or not an asbestos mine will be named as a site of Superfund hazardous waste or not.

If named a Superfund hazardous site, it will be cleaned up and turned into a biomass plant in the future. There is currently a developer that is interested in the abandoned mine site, but the area must be cleaned first and this could cost up to $2 million.

Last year, the two towns were asked to vote yes in order to turn the mine into hazardous waste site, but some are opposed because it may cause property taxes to raise in the area.

The cleanup for this process is said to take up to 10 years to complete and the EPA has stated that it will not be on the Superfund list unless it was approved by nearby towns.
