A new fishery with water from around the South River .

I will pass. Eating lead paint chips is safer than the South River water .

Dupont , for years turned chemicals loose late in the night.

Mercury is the culprit in the South River below the Invisa plant/old Dupont.

My farm is 0 discharge/ impact , don't blame me .

So why doesn't the county sue to make the owners clean up the mess, much like Afton?

DuPont did build a fund to help with some of the cleanup . DuPont is a powerhouse when it comes to power in their day . Waynesboro was built around it and so many local salaries were tied to the place. I think people were complacent because of the local ties they had before Invista/ Koch brothers took it over . The Koch brothers had legal paperwork pretty much giving them no responsibility after they bought the place.

What really happened in the night has never really been exposed . I know as my Grandfather worked in the benger lab with 37 years service for DuPont, he told us how they dumped those huge holding towers in the rivers at night so the foam would be gone before daylight.

50 years later , we have damaged streams that seem to be healing a bit .

People don't realize the influence DuPont had in the textile ind until they moved all their equipment to CHINA .

DuPont destroyed our textile market here in the USA , but they payed well , had good benefits and people were proud to work for them . My Grandfather was until later in life when he had time to sit around and think about all the things they did.

Dupont is the reason the USA and VA are not kicking *** growing sustainable crops like HEMP and losing farmers fields and young farmers every day .

We gonna change that . we will run invista and DuPont out of buisness and we don't have to destroy the land to do it .

It's the people turn

@sez you...Dupont dumped mercury into the south river for years and not only that but Crompton dumped dyes in also. The mercury has seeped into the ground,the river bottom and all the plants and trees along the banks. I don't know how much it would cost to remove the mercury,millions,billions?
I know several older people who told me when Cromptom was still in operation, the river would turn different colors from the dye...one day it would be red, the next day green ect.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
