Additional work might be required at creosote site

Further cleanup may be needed in the river around the St. Maries Creosote Site, EPA testing suggested. While no decision has been made, initial tests showed that areas of the river still contain soils with slightly elevated levels of toxins from the creosote treatment site. While not toxic to humans, the chemicals could cause issues with spawning insects. The EPA is consulting with Arcadis Design and Consultancy to determine their next steps.
