Ward Cove
By Carol Cairnes


November 27, 2009

I just read a Viewpoint on SitNews suggesting that a prison be built at Ward Cove. Because of the contamination on the site it can not be used for human habitation. The area has some serious restrictions on it that are known to anyone who reads the EPA reports.

There are many public documents regarding Ward Cove and anyone can read them. Reading the publicly available documents would be a good start for anyone wanting to develop in Ward Cove. There's a lot to learn.
