The hazardous waste incinerator in Caldwell County was closed in May 1988 by the county for numerous violations. Newly discovered state documents show that Governor Jim Martin knew in September 1987 that pollution from the incinerator was making Caldwell County residents sick and did nothing about it. The evidence against the governor from citizens, local doctors, and public health officials is examined. Governor Martin plans to open a new incinerator in NC within the next two years and is telling citizens it will be safe.
