From incinerators, to landfills, to hazardous waste sites, toxic sites dot Maine’s landscape. For example, over 500 hazardous waste sites and oil spill await cleanup. To help communities become aware of these threats, in 1999, we compiled a list of toxic threats across the state and mapped them in a report. Both the maps and the report are in need of an update so that we can continue to educate and organize the public around toxic threats in their own backyards. Toxics Action Center is currently looking for an intern who wants to gain experience in environmental research, toxics mapping, and writing reports. See existing maps and reports at www.toxicsaction.org/how-we-can-help/information.
Please email resume and cover letter to Bess at email@example.com.
