Abstract:
The wetlands at UNC’s Bingham Facility have been polluted. The facility is facing many violations after storage ponds leaked, pipes broke, and hazardous chemicals were detected in the wastewater treatement system. Neighbors notified regulators of their concerns and UNC appears to have built their wastewater system over wetlands without state and federal permits. The violations will carry a fine if UNC does not offer an explanation and a plan to restore the wetlands or if they do not receive a permit allowing them to ignore the policies.
