ESDC response

Priority: -> normal
State: -> Active
Client: -> Public
Assigned: unassigned -> Peter K.

We discussed this incident with Arana Hankin and Rachel Schatz of ESDC on a conference call on 3/19.
While acknowledging that the Amended Memo of Environmental Commitments requires wheel washing at all exits from the site, Ms. Hankin did not believe the photos and videos attached to this ticket conclusively showed that the truck shown did not get its wheels washed before leaving the exit. We asked her to provide an explanation as to where the wheel washing would have occurred, since it isn't visible in any of the photos. She will inquire and provide a response.
