EPA will clean up Minnesota homes, not New Orleans

As reported here yesterday, the EPA is again maintaining that it does not have the responsibility to clean up interior spaces that may be contaminated with Katrina's toxic dust. That, they say, is the job of the city and state.

And yet, on Oct 31, EPA announced the following, about the St. Regis, Minnesota contaminated site:

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has announced that homes near the St. Regis Superfund site in Cass Lake, Minn., willbe cleaned up and clean topsoil and grass will be applied to their yards...

The interim cleanup plan includes the removaland replacement of carpeting, initial and periodic housecleaning to remove dust,soil and grass cover on yards in the area, and actions to suppress dust on nearbydirt streets. While the houses are being cleaned, residents will be temporarily relocated to local hotels and also receive a food allowance....


People of New Orleans deserve to know why they're getting the shaft from the Feds.
