A lawsuit has been filed and is seeking class action status against the aluminum company alleging exposure to toxic waste caused employees severe health problems including rare forms of cancer. Between 1965 and 1979, Alcoa drew coal from the mine to power its large aluminum smelting operation and allegedly buried 65 million gallons of toxic waste in the mine. A bi-product from the Alcoa production process called chromium hydroxide sludge was dumped by tanker trucks into pits and covered with dirt near the Squaw Creek Mine. The lawsuit claims negligence in dumping toxic waste and in not warning employees of the hazard, infliction of emotional distress, nuisance and loss of consortium.
