Collins Pine Company Sued by Community Health Watch & Global Watchdog Group For Clean Water Act Violations and Toxic Releases to Local Water Supply - Hundreds of Self-Reported Violations - Polluted Discharges into Drinking Water
(Chester, CA) A Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water and Toxics Enforcement Act (“Proposition 65”) lawsuit was filed today in the federal Eastern District Court of California against Collins Pine Company for its sawmill and biomass incinerator operations, which have caused pollution for years in this small community of approximately 2,000 residents. The suit was filed by Aqua Terra Aeris (ATA) Law Group on behalf of local group, Community Health Watch, and international toxics watchdog, Global Community Monitor. Community Health Watch and Global Community Monitor seek an injunction to halt the routine and systematic pollution caused by Collins Pine Company’s discharge, emission and dumping of toxic pollutants, in addition to civil penalties.
State and federal law prohibit discharges of carcinogens and reproductive toxics and pollutants as a means to avoid harm to persons and the environment. Hundreds of hours of research on official reports revealed significant, continuing pollution caused by the Collins Pine Company to drinking water sources, forested land, and air basin in Chester, CA and the surrounding areas.
“These discharges and releases of toxics and water pollutants were more than the occasional lapse – the allegations and self-reported violations suggest an unlawful pattern and practice. Despite violations noted by regulators over a number of years, we continue to discover additional violations,” said Matthew Maclear of ATA Law Group.
With hundreds of self-reported violations and other discharges and emissions of Proposition 65 listed chemicals, the public health of the local community has been adversely affected according to information collected by local leaders of Community Health Watch.
“Quote from GCM”
“The violations noted to date include emissions, disposals and discharges containing known carcinogens, reproductive toxicants and other pollutants. Ineffective government oversight has failed to stop the ongoing pollution. Community Health Watch and Global Community Monitor are requesting that Collins Pine Company be required to manage its operations properly in conformance with state and federal laws.”
Community Health Watch is an unincorporated citizen group located in Chester, California. The mission and focus of Community Health Watch is to protect the combined social, health, environmental and cultural conditions that influence individuals and the community in the Chester and Lake Almanor area of Plumas County, California
(About GCM) ATA Law Group represents nonprofits, community groups, property owners, environmental justice communities and individuals impacted by pollution.
The residents of Plumas County are in the process of mobilizing to put a stop to the PG&E Weather Modification Programs, their installations of Smart Meters, without public consent, and other programs which will cost all PG&E customers $Millions of dollars while diminishing public health. The Plumas County section of the ADC Website will be updated each month with more information on these and other programs.
The PDF Files that you will find below will provide you with information about various programs that are ongoing in Plumas County. The one in blue below proves that PG&E notified the Plumas County Board of Supervisors that they would be conducting Weather Modification Programs in the Fall of 2010 and the Winter and Spring of 2011. These programs are conducted from November through May of each year. (Just Click on the OCT 15, 2010 date below to read the letter.)

71 1 2011 NWV THE SMART METER REBELLION by Rosalind Peterson June 23, 2011.pdf
The Plumas County Board of Supervisors have declined to place the PG&E Weather Modification Programs, the PG&E Smart Meter & Antennas health issues, the Hazmat problems associated with the Light Bulbs PG&E has been installing in homes and businesses, toxic waste disposal for said light bulbs, the Blue/Green Algae issue, and Plumas County Air and Water Quality issues on their agenda since June 6, 2011. They will not hold meetings on the health issues facing Plumas County residents, the dead or tumorous fish being found in the surrounding creeks. Their attitude is one of almost complete public contempt for issue important to the residents of Plumas County.
Some of the Important Issues Facing Plumas County are Listed below:
1. Agricultural crop and tree health could be adversely impacted by climate change produced by experimental weather modification programs and increasing air, water, and soil pollution from the chemicals, like silver iodide, or gases used in these cloud seeding programs. (See Poster Below.)
2. PG&E has not provided the residents of Plumas County, California, with an Environmental Impact Statement on Health Effects or Environmental Impacts - No Environmental Impact Statement has been issued by PG&E to the residents of Plumas County, California.
3. PG&E has not provided the residents with a complete listing of chemicals and gases that are being used in Plumas County, CA for weather modification and other activities being conducted in Plumas County.
4. PG&E’s Weather Modification Programs are not regulated by any city, county, or federal agency – they are not required to notify the residents of California prior to cloud seeding activities. No public oversight or consent is required at this time. However, the California Public Utilities Commission does regulate PG&E and all complaints should be filed with them. There are over 20 ongoing weather modification programs in California and PG&E conducts several of these programs. PG&E does not have the permission of the residents of Plumas County to conducts these programs here.
5. PG&E Weather Modification programs cost most Plumas County residents money due to a wide variety of issues noted in the poster below. Pacific Gas & Electric company is liable for these costs to not only residents but Plumas County struggles under excessive costs from these programs each year...at taxpayer expense. Please document your losses and costs from PG&E's snow enhancement programs and send them to both PG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission.
6. Many Residents are Suffering from Respiratory and Lung Problems, Cardiac Issues, Cancer, Reproductive, and other Diseases that are related to chemical exposures.
7. According to The Center for Disease Control, Plumas County has 8,900 residents disabled or in poor health out of 20,000 total. To find out where your friends, family members, and neighbors can be given a toxic chemicals screen tests please contact "People Getting Educated" (see contact information above).
8. A wide variety of trees and other vegetation are showing signs of declining health or have died out.
9. Honey bee and wild pollinator populations are in steep decline in California. They may also be declining in Plumas County reducing crop production.
10. There are currently over sixty known experimental weather modification programs currently being used across the United States without any studies to determine the synergistic or cumulative effects of those programs or their affect upon regional micro-climates, agricultural crops, human health, and water supplies.
We demand to know what effects these current experimental PG&E Weather Modification Programs are having on human health, soils, agriculture crops, trees, climate, and drinking water supplies in Plumas County. Our Supervisors don't appear to be interested in these problems - therefore, we as residents are taking action.

3) EPA Information on the Hazards of Fluorescent, LED, CFLs, Neon & Other Light Bulbs Click Here Remember that it is illegal to dump these types of light bulbs in the trash...they are hazardous and need to be taken to an approved State of California HAZMAT site. Please contact your Board of Supervisors to find out where the nearest HAZMAT site is located.
JUST A NOTE TO LET PLUMAS COUNTY, CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS THAT PG&E PLANS TO START INSTALLING SMART METERS IN YOUR AREA BEGINNING ON APRIL 11, 2011 - YOU CAN SAY "NO" and Your Board of Supervisors can follow the lead of many other cities and counties in banning the introduction of SMART Meters in Plumas County like the action taken by Mendocino County (along with other cities and counties in California).
Right now all California residents have the right to "OPT-OUT" or "Delay" PG&E SMART METER installations until September 2011, when the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) makes a ruling regarding these installations. Please feel free to contact PG&E and the PUC and let them know that you oppose SMART Meters being installed on your home, business or apartment, hospitals, and other buildings.
IMMEDIATE ACTION ITEMS:
The California Public Utilities Commission won't vote on PG&E's "OPT-OUT" proposal until mid-September, at the earliest. Until then, customers who have not yet received a Smart Meter can call the company at (877) 743-7378 and ask to "OPT-OUT" until this decision is made.
Write to PG&E about any of these important issues and also to let them know that you "OPT-OUT" of their program at this address:
Pacific Gas & Electric Corporation – PG&E Corporate Headquarters
President Christopher P. Johns, Members of the PG&E Board of Directors
One Market, Spear Tower, Suite 2400, San Francisco, CA 94105-1126
And Write to:
The California Public Utilities Commission and let them know your positions about all of these issues. The PUC is making their final decision in September 2011 - Let them know today in writing your opinion of PG&E's SMART METER program, weather modification programs, PG&E Installing Light Bulbs in our homes that have a HAZMAT potential if broken in our homes and also require HAZMAT disposal. The PUC regulates PG&E as they are a public utility company operating in California.

The article below was written in 2008, about Weather Modification Programs which your local weathermen aren't advising you about in California and other states. Anyone (private corporation, weather modification company, individual, city, county, state, and the federal government), can modify your weather without your consent or knowledge and most states and the federal government do not regulate these programs. (California does not regulate these programs.)

The following letter (see pdf 2005), is an official letter from the U.S. White House Science & Technology Advisor regarding the implication of weather modification programs in the United States. (No U.S. Congressional Bill has passed since 2005, to implement any experimental weather mitigation or modification programs...We are sure that Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas will introduce another bill this year, as she does each year, to try and get a bill passed that would allow these programs without public consent, knowledge or oversight.) The information in this letter is still current and spells out liability issues surrounding weather modification programs. If you want to know more about the implacations of cloud seeding please read the following letter (just click on the word letter below).

KTVU 2 News July 29 2008: In this special report, John Fowler looks at growing trend of meteorological manipulation
EPA & California Department of Toxic Substances Control Final Report on Mercury August 2002
Note: Energy Efficient Light Bulb Hazards include Mercury, Arsenic, Lead & Possible PCBs in older ballasts.
See California EPA Website for more information: http://www.calepa.ca.gov
CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY WARNING
LIGHT BULB HAZARDS: FLUORESCENT, CFLs, LEDs & Others
Mercury is a natural element that has many uses. However, mercury is a powerful neurotoxin and causes a variety of adverse health effects due to exposure. Those who are at most risk from mercury exposure are pregnant women and developing children. These types of light bulbs also contain arsenic, lead, and older ballasts release PCBs.
It is Illegal to Discard Fluorescent Light Tubes / Lamps in the Trash According to the California EPA!
“A fluorescent light tube in your dumpster is a violation of the hazardous waste laws. Violation of these laws can result in large fines and criminal prosecution. Fluorescent tubes contain mercury and become hazardous wastes when they no longer work. Mercury poses especially serious hazards to pregnant women and small children. Nonworking tubes must be recycled by an authorized recycling firm and cannot be discarded in the trash…”
Fluorescent tubes and bulbs and other mercury-containing lamps:
These types “…Include Fluorescent light tubes and bulbs, high intensity discharge (HID), metal halide, sodium and neon bulbs. These lights contain mercury vapor that may be released to the environment when they are broken. Mercury is a toxic metal that can cause harm to people and animals including nerve damage and birth defects. If mercury is released into the environment it can contaminate the air we breathe and enter streams, rivers and the ocean, where it can contaminate fish that people eat.
When a fluorescent or other type of energy efficient light bulb breaks please refer to the following guidelines found on this website which include but are not limited to the following:
- Open all doors and windows to ventilate the area for at least 15 minutes.
- Turn off your AC/Fan/Heater so as not to circulate any mercury vapor.
- Young children and pregnant women should leave the area during cleanup.
- Wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as a dust mask and gloves to keep bulb dust and glass from being inhaled or contacting your skin.
- Carefully remove the larger pieces and place them in a secure closed container. Next, begin collecting the smaller pieces and dust.
- It is recommended that you use two stiff pieces of paper such as index cards or one of the many commercial mercury spill kits available.
- Put all material into a sealed container.
- Pat the area with the sticky side of duct, packing or masking tape.
- Wipe the area with a damp cloth.
- Put all waste and materials used to clean up the bulb in a secure closed container and label it "Universal Waste - broken lamp".
- Take the container for recycling to the household hazardous waste facility (HHW) nearest you.
The U.S. Forest Service plans to keep the public out of public forest areas across the United States as well as in Plumas County, California. They are intent on enforcing this government policy. Why?
1. There are lots of reasons but you can bet that the one at the top of the list is a new government policy to allow toxic wastes to be dumped on our public forest lands. They don't want the public to find out about these toxic waste dump sites because they will be polluting our water as these toxics leach into our rivers and streams. Forest fires in these areas will send these dumped toxics into the air polluting everything...our soils, water, and air.
2. The second reason is that many areas, including Plumas County, the clearcutting of trees is high on the priority list and is already taking place in Plumas County, CA at this time. If the public is prevented from going into our national parks they will not be able to see the devastation from these two programs and the degradation of our environment until it is too late...and the damage is done. This is your home...don't let anyone destroy it.

USA Today News - April 20, 2012 Article & Video "...Children who play regularly in lead-contaminated soil, just by putting dust-covered hands or toys in their mouths, are exposed to a poison studies show lowers intelligence and reduces academic achievement, delays puberty and causes other health problems...
The EPA considers soil a potential hazard in children's play areas at levels above 400 ppm. Soil below the EPA threshold isn't necessarily safe: California has set a much lower standard, 80 ppm, using computer models to find a level they say is more protective of children. Of the 21 smelter neighborhoods, 80% had median soil lead levels above California's benchmark in the XRF tests...Even trace amounts of lead — particles so tiny they're barely visible — are enough to cause irreversible health problems in kids who ingest or inhale them. Swallowing just 6 micrograms of lead particles a day over about three months can raise a child's blood-lead level by up to 1 point — which in turn can result in the loss of up to 1 IQ point, according to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. That's why the state lowered its soil standard to just 80 ppm..."

The photographs below show the impact of PG&E cloud seeding programs in Plumas County, California. Please note the Persistent Jet Trails in the background which have formed man-made clouds also changing the weather and climate in Plumas County.
NASA studies show that increasingly persistent jet contrails may turn into man-made clouds that are”…trapping warmth in the atmosphere and exacerbating global warming…” NASA goes on to state that “…any change in global cloud cover may contribute to long-term changes in Earth’s climate. Contrails, especially persistent contrails, represent a human-caused increase in the Earth’s cloudiness, and are likely to be affecting climate and ultimately our natural resources…"

PG&E Smart Meters - California
Video Clip of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Business Meeting, on Thursday September 22, 2011. President Michael Peevey did a topsy-turvy about-face, and declared that a man suffering from headaches from his "smart" meter, can have his analog meter back from PG&E. This is a remarkable change from previous total lack of relief that the CPUC has offered the hundreds of people who have come before it, and the thousands who have sent in complaints, over the last year or so, begging to have their "smart" meters removed. What exactly prompted this change in the commission's response may remain obscure, but there many, many people all over the state that will be relieved and pleased. Not addressed by this turn of events is what will be the fate of communities and municipalities who have declared clear opposition to the new Smart Meters. Who, or what, will be allowed to "go back to the analog meter"? Will a doctor's note about a headache be necessary? The whole meeting on video: http://www.californiaadmin.com/cpuc.shtml

The Increasing use of 2,4-D in Agriculture, in Drinking Water Sources to Control Aquatic Weeds, Along Roadways, and in Forest Lands to Kill unwanted Trees & Plants. Pauline's Guests: Rosalind Peterson & Author Carol Van Strum provides information on this usage, public health impacts, and deadlines for Public Comment.
DAS-40278-9 Corn: For Public Comment
U.S.D.A APHIS is also making available today a PPRA and a draft EA to address a request from Dow, Inc. seeking a determination of nonregulated status of its DAS-40278-9 corn. This corn has been genetically engineered to provide tolerance to 2,4-D and aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitors, also known as “fop” herbicides. DAS-40278-9 corn has been field tested in the major corn growing regions of the continental United States as well as Hawaii. APHIS’ risk assessment indicates that DAS-40278-9 corn is unlikely to pose a plant pest risk. APHIS is making available for public comment the Dow petition for nonregulated status, APHIS’ PPRA and draft EA. These documents can be found at:
The public comment period will close on Feb. 27, 2012.
