Last night a bunch of us walked into Canada and saw the beauty of Niagara Falls. They are beautiful to look at, and very powerful. The Falls are one stop you show experience in your lifetime. I wish we had time to go on the Maid of the Mist, but we have a tight schedule. Some of us got caught in the rain, some worse off than others.
Today we left the hotel in the rain, but when we got to Love Canal the rain stopped. First, thanks to John P from Glenn Springs Holdings to for hosting us. John provided a nice overview and history of the Love Canal. The tour included a look at the treatment facility on site. Then we walked on the cap of the Love Canal site. The site looks park-like, with a few monitoring wells around the perimeter.
Love Canal is a main reason for the development of the Superfund and the listing of National Priorities List of hazardous waste sites. Love Canal was de-listed in 2004, and now is in a monitoring and treatment operation.
We are now heading back towards home. We had a great week, learned a lot, and had great fun doing it. It was a pleasure spending a week with everyone! And also a great big thanks to Peter, our driver. He got us everywhere safe and sound!
