Why do they always find toxic waste in large developments?
When I was a kid Nesmith lake was a hip and happening spot. Nice apartments, a nice beach, the canal beautiful homes. In the early 80s the lake was closed due to what we were told was pcb contamination. Not a big story and I felt the only reason it was mentioned in the papers was because our "Chilly Open" Golf tourn was held there and had to be moved.
Our paper has been very quiet about it but I stumbled upon a facebook page tonight. Here is a link to EPA document concerning the clean up:

I swam in this lake a bit and have had family and friends live in the area. The apartments arent so nice anymore but the surrounding neighborhood is very pretty. I bet people buy homes there everyday without even knowing:(
How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong. Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these. GeorgeWashingtonCarver
