Kennecott will field questions Thursday, April 3, regarding reports by The Salt Lake Tribune that they failed to disclose an unsafe tailings pond, which could’ve breached during a strong earthquake and buried entire neighborhoods in Magna. City Weekly asked Max Bergeson, a clerk at the Anniversary Inn, what he thought it would take for Kennecott to come clean?
“They’ve got to be completely honest and publicly come clean about everything. If it took this long for [this incident] to come out, it makes you wonder what else they might be withholding from the public just to save face. Companies like that usually say they’re looking out for everyone, but they’re generally just looking out for No. 1.”
