Environmental pollution and hazardous waste remain a problem at the local, state, and national levels. Much pollution is legal because of state and federal permits granted to businesses. Still, there are businesses that violate the law. The INDEPENDENT examines eight Wake County pollution sources. The facilities profiled were selected using three main criteria: the number or egregiousness of the violations; proximity to population centers; and fines assessed since 2003.
