  • WERU News Report 10/8/14

    Producer/Host: Amy Browne

    The site of the GAC Chemical plant on the shoreline in Searsport has been the location of chemical & fertilizer
    companies dating back to the early 1900s. The beach is littered with relics of the industrial past, but little was
    known about what toxic legacy was left behind — until local residents, tired of refusals from state and federal
    agencies, took matters into their own hands. In recent days news broke that DEP may be stepping in — but can they be counted on to conduct a full assessment? We talk with Ron Huber, Executive Director of Friends of Penobscot Bay; Sheila Dassatt, Executive Director of Downeast Lobstermen’s Association; Nick Seeger, Friends of Penobscot Bay.
