fmc_2

(POCATELLO, ID) – The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes have won another lawsuit against the FMC Corporation. The three-judge appellate court has ordered FMC to pay the tribes $1.5 million annually for a waste storage permit. The order remains in effect until FMC cleans up its phosphorous slag and other pollutants on the reservation. Attorney Paul Echo Hawk says the pollution has had a negative impact on the economic security, health, and welfare of tribal members.
