With the new information, (Fort Smith BOD Keith) Lau said he’s not convinced that health and safety are the driving force behind the well ban. “I think it’s about their management plan to control a toxic site with ADEQ,” he said. “I’m not helping Whirlpool, in any way, shape, form or fashion, to get out of their liability for a contaminated site.”

Quote from SWTR article:

"Fort Smith directors are giving themselves more time to consider a request to ban new wells around the now-vacant Whirlpool site. Due to contamination, Whirlpool Corp. has asked the city to pass an ordinance banning the drilling of groundwater wells near the company’s former refrigerator plant at 6400 Jenny Lind Road."

The proposed ordinance was up for vote Tuesday but was pulled from the meeting agenda by the Fort Smith Board of Directors on Friday.
