Out of Control

Record #:
Two years after the hazardous waste incinerator in Caldwell County has been shut down, residents of the county and former employees of the incinerator company are experiencing serious health problems. Evidence suggests the state of NC knew that the incinerator was violating EPA and health regulations but did nothing to shut the company down. State officials dispute those claims, but questions remain as to how much the state actually knew, why it failed to regulate the company, and what it means for a proposed incinerator, and the future protection of NC citizens from hazardous waste pollution.
