Description

WESH-TV caught a local septic comapny pumping, and illegally dumping, used motor oil on a field, then cutting the land and selling it as sod. We took samples form the places where the oil was pumped to confirm it was in there, and also learned it contained high levels of heavy metals & arsenic. WESH-TV even tracked some of the sod that was sold: it now lines a bike path to a school, and confronted state regulators who were aware of the problem, but did nothing for a year.
