Idaho's Water Resources

The MILES project area of study that I feel is most important is the research into our water resources! However, I would extend it to the politically incorrect area of contamination. Pocatello’s landfill, Union Pacific’s large diesel waste ponds and FMC’s heavy metal and radon have contaminated both our air and water. Our underground aquifer has been damaged for years to come and we need to guard against continuing and future issues. I know that we (or east coast companies) made these decisions for socio- economic reasons but current and future generations are, and will be paying the price.
