Phospine Gas Releases on Fort Hall Indian Reservation Go Unnoticed by EPA


FORT HALL, IDAHO – The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes continue their work to ensure tribal members and residents living on the Fort Hall Reservation are protected from unnecessary environmental exposures.

EPA staff from Seattle and their oversight Contractor toured the site and inspected the storage of over hundred 55-gallon drums filled with hazardous waste waiting to be shipped off site for incineration. The following day, Tribal representatives discovered that the drums were left open, releasing toxic Phosphine gas into the environment within Reservation boundaries.
