Harriman City Council member Buddy Holley wants something done sooner than later.
However, he believes the cleanup of a former paper mill in the city will be delegated to the “later” category if the site is named to a National Priorities List.
“It will delay this thing for years,” he said. “This is not going to be a high-priority NPL.”
Holley pointed out a site where uranium had been milled as an example. He said that site went 15 years before a shovel of dirt was moved.
