Abstract:
There are \"extremely high\" levels of lead and PCBs at Raleigh Metal Recycling's property. The NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources has known about the contamination for seven years; yet the DENR and the company have yet to develop a plan to clean up the contaminants which are now getting into a local stream that empties into the Neuse River and also onto an adjacent property. Violation notices were issued to the owner in March. Porter relates what progress is being made toward a cleanup plan.
