Eugene developer Dan Desler has pleaded not guilty on all counts associated with alleged air pollution violations stemming from demolition of a former Willamette Industries mill site in Sweet Home in 2007 and early 2008.

A pretrial hearing is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. June 14 at the Linn County Courthouse. A jury trial is set to begin on Sept. 20.
In April 2009, Desler was charged with seven counts of first-degree air pollution, three counts of second-degree air pollution, supplying false information to an agency and recklessly endangering another person in connection with demolition of the mill at 2210 Tamarack.
Desler, 65, is free on $100,000 security. The air pollution charges are Class B and C felonies. Desler is represented by attorney Michael Vergamini of Eugene.
...
Desler is the managing trustee for the Western States Land Reliance Trust, which owns the 153-acre former mill site. The mill closed in 1994 and the property has been idle since then. In 2004, it was severely damaged by an arson fire.
It is part of some 420 acres owned by the trust, which Desler plans to turn into an ecologically-oriented resort and housing development.
In 2007, workers started demolishing the mill, but according to court records, Desler did not perform an asbestos survey, nor did he file a written notification to the Department of Environmental Quality concerning an asbestos abatement program.

The guilty plea of Daniel ...

The guilty plea of Daniel Desler to the criminal charge was a part of the plea deal which also included probation for 3 years and community service for 300 hours. Desler is 68 years old.

In year 2011 a grand jury indicted Mr. Desler on 9 criminal counts for allegedly failing to remove materials containing asbestos safely prior to the start of tearing down of structures at 2210 Tamarack Street. The indictment says Desler released particles of asbestos into the surroundings and negligently put nearby workers and cleanup crews at the risk of developing serious diseases because of asbestos exposure.
Desler hired a contractor who demolished buildings without any safeguards to ensure asbestos fibers are not becoming airborne. The contractor did not wet asbestos material prior to its removal. The site became so tainted that the EPA declared it as a Super-find site. Then the agency had to spend US$1589753 for cleaning the site up. On Wednesday, Desler was asked to fully reimburse that money to the agency.
In a recently filed sentencing memo, the office of the United States Attorney says Desler was legally responsible for releasing the asbestos as he was the manager of the trust, which owned former Willamette Industries saw mill site since year 2002.
Following a year 2004 fire at that facility, firefighters had reported the likely presence of asbestos in debris to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), the memo says. The buildings were inspected by the agency and informed Desler that asbestos was possibly present, according to the memo. Desler hired a contractor whose tests showed the presence of asbestos in several buildings at that site. But Desler didn't do anything to remove asbestos safely, the indictment says. Instead, he hired an unlicensed contractor in 2007 to perform the renovation and demolition work.
