It's a joke. These states couldn't manage a picnic area let alone a national forest. The Selway-Bitterroot is a federal wilderness area. That's the next best level of protection, perhaps even more so, than a national park. Next stop Mt. Rushmore.
When I moved to Livingston in 2008 for a job as a reporter for The Livingston Enterprise, I was blissfully unaware of this extreme groundwater pollution. I was shocked. I know the lawyer bringing the suit against BN from a story I wrote about a bridge issue where he lived and wish him well. This is a tragedy of epic proportions for a place so scenic and a water and fish mecca. Nice work on this one plucked from the memory hole. Given the situation in Libby, Montana is a much hammered place all through its history. Time to change that.
Hey Dan, no longer at the Chronicle? We flew over the Crazies in 2008. I left Livingston a few months later. In Ketchum now. Much better. Good luck.
