RE: Quote: the contractor who wins the bid for removal and remediation must contain all that is stirred up during the process. They use a large fabric/filtering boom system to catch anything that is disturbed during the work". First, those systems can fail and the booms can split. Second, the contractor may be "responsible" but the risk is great.

It's understandable that you might think that the Lowellville area would be contaminated when the other dams are removed and the sediment treated. But the reality is that the contractor who wins the bid for removal and remediation must contain all that is stirred up during the process. They use a large fabric/filtering boom system to catch anything that is disturbed during the work.
