Ma kahi launa like ʻole, hana pū nā mea hoʻokele kaiāulu, nā mea haumia, nā kaiāulu kūloko a me ka Agency Protection Environmental e hoʻomaʻemaʻe i ka pū kīʻawa e hoʻopili ana i ka muliwai ʻo Ashtabula kokoke i Lake Erie.

ʻO kā lākou pahuhopu maʻamau e hoʻomaka i ka hoʻoheheʻe ʻana i ka muliwai me nā ʻole o nā makahiki lawoʻa a me nā haʻawina maʻamau o nā hoʻomaʻemaʻe e hana ʻia ma lalo o ke kānāwai Superfund.

ʻO nā lapalapa o nā metala koʻikoʻi a me nā maʻi hōʻeha a nā maʻi PCB ua hoʻohaumia i ka silt wai-lalo.

ʻAʻole hoʻomaʻemaʻe ka dredging i ka haumia akā hiki ke komo i ka nui o ka holo o ka moku ma ke kahawai e kahe ana i loko o Lake Erie ma Ashtabula, ma ke kihi hikina ʻākau o Ohio.

“ʻAʻole ia he pilikia kaiapuni wale nō. He pilikia hoʻokele waiwai nui ia i loko o kēia kalana, "wahi a John Mahan, ka mea hoʻonohonoho o ka Ashtabula River Partnership, kahi hana like a nā mea hoʻokele kaiāulu, nā luna hoʻomalu, nā mea hoʻohaumia a me nā kaona.

Ua kipaku like ʻia nā hoihoi like ʻole e ka ʻike o Fields Brook, kahi kahawai kokoke i uka i nā makahiki i hala aku nei i kau ʻia ma ka papa inoa ʻo EPA Superfund o nā pilikia nui loa o ka lahui.

E like me nā pūnaewele Superfund ʻē aʻe, ua kau ʻia nā lilo a lohi ka hana hoʻomaʻemaʻe maoli. Aia kahi ʻae he pono e loaʻa kahi ala ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi. I kēia manawa, ke hana nei ka pili. ʻO kēia hāʻule wale nō i hoʻohui ʻia e ka ʻAhaʻōlelo ka ʻōlelo i ka bila hoʻolilo kālā o ka EPA e koi ana i ka ʻoihana e hāʻawi i nā kauoha dredging.

ʻAʻole ia he koi, akā "hopohopo ke ʻano," i ʻōlelo ʻo Emily Green, he loea ʻo Great Lakes me ke keʻena Midwest o ka Sierra Club. "Inā lākou e hoʻāʻo e pahu hou i ka makahiki e hiki mai ana, he hopena nui ia i nā loko."

ʻO ka Dredging pinepine ka koho hoʻomaʻemaʻe makemake ʻia no ka mea mau ia a pale i ka haumia mai ke nalo ʻana i lalo, wahi a Green.
