Revere MA EPA testing: Ira Novaselsky coverup on 525 Beach Street CERCLA 21E contamination.

EPA Region 4, created three CERCLIS sites for the same Source of Contamination that is poisoning the residents and environment of South Asheville, NC. 50 people with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma within 1 mile of the CTS Toxic Disaster site and scores more with other cancers and illness. People are dead... Now we demand justice. Was the compromised and conflicted response by EPA Region 4 part of trying to conceal their failure to handle a preexisting Superfund properly that led to the creation of a $30,000,000.00 subdivision on a toxic waste site the inertia to commit the alleged crimes- like obstruction of justice, violating CERCLA laws, fraud and violating the 14th Amendment rights of the neighbors? Was all the abuse and exploitation by EPA Region 4 just a callous abandonment of duty, mission and honor? Are the continued actions that are incomprehensible, illogical and dangerous part of the grand scam that EPA Region 4 seemingly hatched in 1999? The answers are in the documents, and many of those documents have been withheld, "lost" or taken back by EPA Region 4.... Why would this happen and how could it happen? How could $502,938.00 in OIG standards and practices investigations ( totaling 50 pages ) fail to reveal what this community has discovered? This is a case of right versus wrong and the safety of human health and the environment- Please watch the entire series of short films and please contact elected officials and request follow up investigations.... Yesterday and today it is our community, tomorrow it may be yours-

EPA Fake CERCLA Part 5
This is the shocking, revolting and ultimately liberating story of a community that stood up to the abuse, exploitation and alleged criminal activities and fraud perpetrated by EPA Region 4 regulators in their misguided and damaging response to an unmitigated toxic disaster in South Asheville, NC. For 25 years, EPA has known that extremely dangerous toxins were escaping the CTS of Asheville Inc CERCLIS site and because of their lack of proper response, a $30,000,000.00 subdivision was built on a toxic waste site. There are a few that have been duped to believing in these officials who are alleged to have broken the law and violated the agency's regulation and guidance policies.... but in the end this is the story of a committed community working tirelessly and diligently to discover the truth and to pursue environmental justice. There are those that will be carried away with the fist phase victory of getting city water lines run to safeguard homeowners.... However, this community is dedicated additionally to making certain that the primary source of contamination is removed properly, the air is assessed properly for vapor contamination and that real accountability and reform follow in the wake of this horrific betrayal by EPA Region 4 officials and their state level counterparts at NCDENR. While there are countless men and women working at USEPA and at NCDENR, the sad reality is that there are a select group that defied the mission and injured the public's trust. Enough is enough and the truth found in the documents, no matter how long it has taken to see them- We will prevail- We continue our efforts to assist the Rices, the Robinsons, the Dockins and all the area residents who have been harmed... the 50 people with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, the scores of others with cancers, like pancreatic and liver cancer, brain cancer, brain tumors and other maladies.... It is in their honor that we continue to work fir justice-
RCRA Hazardous Waste Training Requirements (40 CFR 262.34 and 265.16)
Managers and personnel involved in handling, storing, and disposing of hazardous waste at your site must complete training required under US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, or RCRA. The specific RCRA hazardous waste training each employee needs depends on your site’s “generator status,” the employee’s responsibilities, and other factors. Watch this video to find out who needs RCRA training, how much training is required, and how often training must be repeated or “refreshed.” Find hazardous waste training options for everyone at your facility at Lion.com/RCRA-Training. Who are “hazardous waste personnel”? US EPA defines hazardous waste personnel as “any employee whose actions or failure to act can result in noncompliance with the RCRA hazardous waste regulations.”

Revere 525 Beach Street CERCLA 21E coverup sample manipulation

I met up with Revere's Clifford Pisano and ACLU witness Wanda Strange today to discuss his newly re-filed employment lawsuit (more examples of Revere lawsuits and nigger talk here) and his ongoing litigation with "The Developers" (who have changed their name 3 or 4 times) relative to their history of malfeasance and coverup at the 525 Beach Street Development. Recall that the City allowed them to get this entire project through zoning and Site Plan Review without ever notifying the taxpayers. City Councilor Ira Novoselsky (seen below as taken today with video forthcoming) allowed this to happen; he knew about the testing all along so I say he might as well be on the take. I asked him if he was going to smack my camera again as he did in City Hall as seen on videos below, when that slime ball Miles Lang-Kennedy tried to make me turn my camera off when I complained about it to the City Solicitor..... Among other things they are trying to usurp almost all of the walkway seen above, leaving just over two feet. This would require the Pisano family to convert to natural gas instead of the existing oil service at a cost of $20,000.00. It is my understanding that Mr. Pisano would settle this case for $7,500.00 were it not for the additional expenditure. Otherwise he demands $27,500.00. However, another proposal would leave more area for oil service and for the Pisano family to use the walkway for groceries and other ingress/egress as noted in pictures filed with the Land Court. Here is your back story; today's video coming, stay tuned.

As a first responder at the scene of a hazardous materials incident, you must obtain specific information about any material involved in the incident as soon as possible. Many reference texts and organizations can provide response personnel with technical data and physical assistance regarding both the hazards associated with an incident and methods to deal with these hazards. Some of those texts are: Facility Emergency Response Plans, Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure are as (SPCC) Plans, the National Fire Protection Association are as (NFPA) 704 System, the Department of Transportation, Emergency Response Guidebook, Material Safety Data Sheets, and shipping documents are immediate sources of information in an emergency.

7. Site Restoration Law
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) This lecture covers site restoration law by looking at the US Navy's use of the island of Vieques as weapons testing ground. Vieques residents are filing a civil suit against the US government, which raises issues of burden of proof, scientific certainty with respect to exposure amounts and health impacts, and how the government protects citizens from environmental hazards. Professor Wargo traces the evolution of site restoration law, from the National Environmental Policy Act in 1969 setting the stage for sustainable land use, to Superfund amendments in the late 1980s that mandated more stringent protection of citizens from toxics. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

The EPCRA law was designated to help local communities protect public health, safety, and the environment from chemical hazards. To implement EPCRA, Congress requires each state to appoint a State Emergency Response Commission (SERC). The SERCs were required to divide their states into Emergency Planning Districts and to name a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) for each district.

What is RCRA Hazardous Waste Training?
Visit us at http://www.natlenvtrainers.com Who must Receive RCRA Hazardous Waste Training? Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations small quantity generators (SQG) and large quantity generators (LQG) of hazardous wastes are required to provide personnel with initial training within 6 months of employment or assignment to a new position with hazardous waste management tasks and annual training there after. A SQG generates between 100 kilograms (220 lbs.) and 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lbs.) of non-acute hazardous waste and no more than 1-kilogram (2.2 lbs.) of acute hazardous waste per calendar month. A SQG can store hazardous waste for 180 days or less but the storage amount cannot exceed 6,000 kilograms (13,200 lbs.). A LQG generates 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lbs.) or more of non-acute hazardous waste or more than 1 kilogram (2.2 lbs.) of acute hazardous waste per calendar month. A LQG can store hazardous waste for 90 days or less. For a LQG, all "facility personnel" are required to receive this training. Facility personnel are defined under 40 CFR 260.10 as "all persons who work at, or oversee the operations of, a hazardous waste facility, and whose actions or failure to act may result in noncompliance with the requirements of part 264 or 265". Although this definition is vague, EPA has indicated in various guidance documents and memos, individuals who perform one or more of at least the following hazardous waste functions are required to receive hazardous waste training: • Label hazardous waste containers; • Move hazardous waste containers; • Perform inspections; • Perform the functions of an emergency coordinator; and • Prepare, review, or sign hazardous waste manifests.

Families near CTS Site Evacuated
Breaking news at the CTS Superfund site in South Asheville. Officials are now relocating families after new tests reveal highly toxic levels of TCE in the outside air around the site. Vapor tests show the air is eight times more toxic than EPA regulations allow. EPA and state public health officials drove to Asheville Friday night to deliver the test results to the Rice family, who live next to the CTS site. "It was such a shock to learn how high the samples were," said Dot Rice. "They were eight times the normal limit someone should be breathing." "This is a big deal because the source of the vapors is the source of the springs [near the property], the source of the contaminated springs is underneath the CTS site," said enviromentalist Dr. Jeff Wilcox. The EPA is relocating three families to hotels until the air quality is suitable to breath. The EPA is paying the hotel costs plus a $50 per diem allowance for each person affected. Officials plan to place the families in long-term housing until they can find a way to minimize the threat. "We just got the data this week. We are in talks with contractors by can't give you a time frame right this minutes," said Samantha Urquart-Foster with the EPA when asked how long it would take to get the families back in their homes. Additional vapor testing will now be conducted immediately to assess whether other homes in the area are also affected. A News 13 Investigation last November found TCE vapor levels well above the limit, but the EPA has not tested the air since 2008. Related Link: Highest Level of TCE Found

American Trucking Associations v. City of Los Angeles: Oral Argument - April 16, 2013
Facts: In 1997, the Port of Los Angeles ("the Port") introduced a plan to expand its cargo terminals to better accommodate its high shipping volume. Following public concern that the plan could significantly increase air pollution, the Board of Harbor Commissioners adopted a Clean Air Action Plan ("CAAP"). The CAAP aimed to reduce emissions and specifically targeted the Port's drayage truck business. Roughly 16,000 drayage trucks regularly serve the Port, transporting goods between customers and the cargo terminals. Beginning in 2008, the CAAP banned drayage trucks from the Port, unless the carriers entered into a series of concession agreements. These agreements imposed a progressive ban on older trucks and provided incentives for drayage truck operators to convert their aging fleets to cleaner trucks. American Trucking Associations ("ATA"), a national association of motor carriers, challenged several provisions within the concession agreements and brought suit against the City of Los Angeles and its Harbor Department. ATA argued that the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act ("FAAA") preempted the agreements. The FAAA Act prohibits a state from enacting any regulation related to the "price, route, or service of any motor carrier." ATA claimed that the concession agreements amounted to such a regulation. ATA further argued that the State could not limit a federally licensed motor carrier's access to a port. The district court disagreed with ATA and held that none of the provisions were preempted; ATA appealed. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed in part and reversed in part. The appellate court determined that when the Port was acting as a market participant, rather than a market regulator, the FAAA Act did not apply. ATA appealed to the Supreme Court of the United States, which granted certiorari limited to the two questions below. Question: Can a municipal government limit the activities of motor carriers when it acts as a market participant, as opposed to a market regulator? Can a municipal government bar federally licensed motor carriers from access to a port? Conclusion: No, and the Court declined to address the issue of whether a municipal government can ban federally licensed motor carriers' access to the ports. Justice Elena Kegan delivered the opinion for a unanimous Court. The Court held that the FAAA Act draws a rough line between a government's exercise of regulatory power and its own contract-based participation in a market. In this case, the government was not acting as a private participant in a contract but was wielding coercive power over private companies by threatening criminal punishment. The Court held that these actions clearly fit within the FAAA Act's prohibition on government regulating the "price, route, or service of any motor carrier." Contractual commitments resulting from the threat of criminal sanctions rather than ordinary bargaining clearly represent the government taking on a regulatory role. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurring opinion in which he noted that the FAAA Act's provision giving the federal government authority over intrastate commerce raises serious Constitutional concerns because the Constitution explicitly limits Congress' regulatory power to interstate commerce. However, because neither party raised a constitutional challenge to the FAAA Act, Justice Thomas joined with the majority.

And, that's very important to the Navy to do that. We're mandated by Congress to do that. And, that's part of what my job is – to make sure that the program moves forward towards that goal. Now, we don't do a base at a time, an island at a time. We break it up into things called Sites. So, I'm going to be referring to Sites and Site Numbers. That's just because a site is a particular location that has a particular history to it with a particular set of contaminants that the Navy has to identify through investigation and then clean up. And, you'll see, depending upon where we are on the island, we're in all the different stages of it. There's a big process --- cleanup process that you might have heard about called CERCLA. Well, CERLCA is basically a long and many-stepped process, and the first part of it includes a lot of phases of investigation followed by decision-making, and then followed by implementing cleanup strategies. And, we're in all different phases of that depending on which site we're on. NAVY CONTRACTOR YARD – BUILDING 571- “THE COMPOUND” Okay, so hold on Darius here. Stop --- because I spoke a little too much. I just want you to see to the left quickly. This is the Navy contractor yard. So, the Navy contractor has field work particularly going on here. Then, they'll be in this yard. You can see some of the signs of some of the companies there. And, this is also where somebody like me goes. I visit the Island. I stop at Building One and see Patricia at the Caretaker Site Office, but then I also come out and see our contractors --- our contractors who are performing the field work. You may know this, but the Navy actually doesn't do the cleanup. The Navy gets money from Congress to contract to do the cleanup. And, we hire contractors for basically two reasons, either: One: To write documents --- and, they write a lot of documents as many of you've seen --- or, Two: To actually go out and do field work into the field and clean up. Right. And, of course, my preference is to get as quickly as we can and thoroughly as we can to the point where we can actually do the physical cleanup. What we do is we have people at the compound here, and these are Navy contractors working on the site. Okay. I think we can march forward just a little bit. And, we're on Avenue M, for those who know the base, you notice. And, we're headed toward Site Six. FAT GRAPE WINERY – THE NAVY BRIG Now, off to our right here --- and you can go slow, Darius, here; thank you --- Now off to our right here you'll notice the sign for the Fat Grape Winery. The thing about Treasure Island is it's attracted a lot of commercial tenants. And, what the Navy's position is: We let the City of San Francisco --- through the Treasure Island Development Authority – lease out major portions of the island that have been found suitable to lease. There's a process for that that occurred, and there's an agreement between the Navy and the City. And, the Navy has an arms-length relationship on it. The City of San Francisco through TIDA runs a very prosperous tenant program, both for residents and for commercial outlets. Among these, there are six wineries that are stationed here --- that have outlets here, at least on Treasure Island. One of them is Fat Grape Winery.
