readerRESPONSE:  "I noticed you were interested in acquiring former industrial sites that had environmental issues?  I know of a site adjoining our railroad that used to be a particle board production facility.  The environmental issue affecting the site is from the 1,000's of tons of sawdust on the site. Some of the sawdust is in silos but there are also mountains of the material stored outside.  When it rains tannins are being washed out of the material and into the ground." - Kevin  REKevin, Yes, we are interested.  Can you send more details?
