    Foster Lodge is Off Limits

    As you know, the Chapter lost the small cabin in the Chariot fire.  Due to the age of the building, building materials containing asbestos were used.  The site is now considered a health hazard by the Forest Service and the Sierra Club.  When burned, asbestos can become airborne and poses a significant health risk.  In addition there may be other toxins in the burn debris.  The Chapter is in the process of having an environmental analysis of the area to determine what toxic contaminants exist and to what extent.   Disturbance of the debris area increases the likelihood of spreading contaminants beyond the debris field requiring a larger cleanup area and increased costs to the Chapter.
     
    THEREFORE, THE CHAPTER HAS "CLOSED" THE MT. LAGUNA FACILITY AND DECLARED THE AREA "OFF LIMITS".  ONLY THOSE PERSONS SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZED ARE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE FACILITY AND GROUNDS.  PERMISSION FOR ENTRY MUST BE OBTAINED BY CONTACTING RICHARD MILLER AT THE CHAPTER OFFICE, 858-569-6005 OR BY EMAIL AT richard.miller@sierraclub.org.
     
    The Chapter asks that you please respect this decision.  Your cooperation will help to protect the health and safety of our members and supporters and speed up the recovery process.
