6/13/2006 Update or Other Action Phone conversation with Mrs. Bang. She had received my recent letter and wsa upset. They felt that they had done what they were supposed to do. They had hired professionals, and now hearing that everything was not finished when they had been told by the City and their professionals that everything was taken care of. Mrs. Bang felt like someone was not doing their job. Mrs.ang stated that eh trees were growing in the area, the lake was clean, and suggested that I visit the site to see it's current condition. I explained that a site visit was not practical, in that even though surface appearances might depict that everything is fine, the site visit would not be able to depict the contamintion remaining in the ground, in the stockpile, and what the condition of groundwater is. Mrs. Bang felt that the groundwater flowed to the lake due to the surface topography, I told her that was possible, or it could flow the other direction. Mrs. Bang told me tha tshe would try to contact Rich Walker, and would provide me with a written response to my letter. Don Fritz
