Mmmm, acidic water…

This will stick in Bookman’s craw….

Looks like a little spill happened outside the old hometown. I believe the Agrium plant was at one time owned by Evergreen Resources, Nu-West, and Becker. If the berm is the one I think it is, the affected land may have been my dad’s once upon a time.

If so, it wouldn’t be the first time there’s been a spill there. There was one in the late 1970s that ruined our pick up and some of our equipment. It also left the ground there susceptible to saturation; we had to have a tractor pulled out more than once after getting stuck.

  1. Ouch. Sucks to be them.

  2. A small correction, the Agrium plant was never directly involved with Evergreen. Regardless though, this isn’t too good. I wonder what the local reaction is; I’ll have to ask.
