July 5: Possible Asbestos Material Stalls Work on Dam
The discovery of possible “’asbestos-containing material”’ has stalled work on the Boundary Dam power plant, which has been shut down since late February. Contractors told management that the substance was present at the worksite. The power company is working on verifying exactly what the substance is. Meanwhile, construction has been called off and the area in question roped off to eliminate possible worker exposure.
