Toxic release data from this facility doesn't add up. All those labs and only one toxin being released? What goes into the sewer has to be quantified too-its really not supposed to go down the sink if its toxic. Lets hope that they are just doing a really good job of capturing their toxic waste. Does anyone know about the toxin that they are listing as released into the air? Im not familiar with it.
