EPA Boss Coming to Montana
The acting administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Andrew Wheeler will travel to the Butte-Anaconda Superfund Sites this Friday, according to the office Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines. No head of the EPA has visited the Superfund sites since Administrator William Reilly came in 1990 by invitation of former Montana Sen. Max Baucus. Local and state officials including Chief Executives Dave Palmer and Bill Everett will also visit the sites as well as Superfund Activist Fritz Daily. Wheeler will also hold meetings with local stakeholders. These meetings are reportedly not open to the public, but will be open to the news media.
