The Battle Against the Bio-Lab

Record #:
The residents of Granville have another fight on their hand. Residents oppose the construction of the National Bio and Agro Defense Facility proposed for construction in Butner, NC by the Department of Homeland Security. Granville residents and the Granville Non-Violent Action Team have defeated repeated government attempts to place undesirable projects in their neighborhoods including an atomic-particle super collider, a hazardous waste incinerator, and a low-level radiation waste facility. The county and its residents will be fighting a large group of influential political forces to keep the facility out of the county. One of the biggest concerns is the potential effect wastewater will have on the water supply.
