Don't drink the water in Newtown

With an illegal 15,000 cubic yard lnadfill on Birch hill Road, near the Rock Ridge Country Club, it has leached for twenty years such things as twice the action level of lead, Barium a radio-active medical waste, acetone, VOCs and many other carcinogens. With Blumenthal being such a liar this is one of 24 sites that people can drink from. He dismissed the suit illegally to clean up these sites. They are scattered across Fairfield County including Westport. Batchelder, one of the nations top ten brownfields, is located just above the town aquifer along with the Newtown landfill and a few other private toxic sites. The Real Estate Community in Newtown will not tell you of the sites and will actually lie to you regarding their existence. Homes are cheaper in that area which make them very attractive but there is a reason for this which should include such things as 30,000 pico-curies of radon in the Head Of Meadow Grade School water. This was on TV several years ago and the town has done nothing to remediate it or close the school for the safety of the children. One woman in the area had a problem with her children forming bones correctly until it was discovered she had 50,000 pico-curies in her water, just down the street from the grade school. The inbred local system of government protects other dump locations. The health Dept. actually refuses to test sites or monitor them despite DEP regs. Scudder road, Birch Hill, Rock Ridge, Taunton Hill, Pepperidge Rd. are a few directly contaminated. Trust the Real Estate Community to lie about these things. A good example of this would be Prudential Realty, owned by Ginny McKinney who had the woman that lives in the landfill working for her as an agent. Check to see how many past owners there were of almost any house there, they left for their health. You can also depend on "The Patch" to block the truth about the water. Apparently they don't care if their revenue comes from poisoning people when sold their nightmare home.

Yep, the street # of 48 was changed by theTown Clerk to 46, owners name was changed , and they sold the illegal landfill at auction. Now someone is fixing it to sell. Crooked, crooked, crooked...

Anyone consider that the town aquifer has one of the nations top 10 brownfields next to it from the aluminum smelter? That on another side is the Town Landfill? That the other side has crappoziellos dumping poisons for 20 years? The fourth side is the shopping center?

........Really? What is it used for then? Barium in surface water is different than high levels of barium from 180 feet down in an aquifer. The reported bags of medical waste in the landfill might be a give-away as to where it came from.
