Mystery at the Old Farm

Record #:
The old Cary Health Farm, the former site of the Division of Environmental Management, has been contaminated with hazardous waste. Questionable laboratory practices contributed to high levels of mercury, silver, cadmium, DDT, and other hazardous chemicals found in soil tests. The practices and contamination have been known for at least five years and there is some evidence to suggest that officials knew about contamination for longer and did nothing about it. The state is trying to sell the property.
