GAC Chemical has agreed, after 15 years of pressure, to clean up a sulfur waste site that Maine DEP says may be responsible for significant acidification of Penobscot Bay. Quick look at two maps. More below the cross sections of the eroding waste buried next to the old sulfur factory and of the slope to be remediated. More to come
GAC will also trim back and stabilize the eroding shoreline immediately below the old acid pile. FOPB will be awarding GAC and their consultant CES Certificates of Environmental leadership for their efforts.
