Montana state officials
have accepted the results of a study sponsored by the city of Whitefish of an
underground diesel plume caused by spills at BNSF’s locomotive fueling station
in Whitefish, a Superfund site, the Whitefish Pilot reports. Using $50,000 in
state grant money obtained by the city, Roger Noble and Applied Water
Consulting, of Kalispell, investigated the extent of the contamination in
Whitefish’s Railway District and a neighborhood east of the middle school.
