According to my research, it has been 32 years since some of the
first synthetic liners were installed at the toxic waste dump
located near Rimini, SC. Also, according to the research those
liners are warranted for only 50 years.
I have spoken with a state authority responsible for managing
and maintaining the monitoring wells in and surrounding the toxic
waste dump near Rimini, SC and according to them the measurements
from the samples are within tolerance.
On the other hand, my opinion is that once ground water
contamination occurs it is too late. We have a zero tolerance
campaign for littering. How about a zero tolerance campaign
for toxic waste dump contamination of groundwater?
