NEIGHBORS

March 30, 1995|By SALLY BUCKLER

Whether you live close to the Carr's Mill Landfill or not, you should be interested in how the county is handling the remediation of this site, contaminated years ago when the landfill was open. Contaminants can leach into streams, underground aquifers and into wells. Additionally, how the county decides to handle the Carr's Mill Landfill problem sets precedents. We all need to be concerned. We all get our drinking water from wells.

Mark your calendar for Wednesday and plan to attend the 7:30 p.m. meeting at Bushy Park Elementary School to discuss long-term remediation for the Carr's Mill Landfill. You will have a chance to offer your comments and ask questions at this meeting. Several local citizens speak for our community, and you can contact one of them to learn more about the issue.

Call Jane Conlon at 489-4353, Tom Bianco at 442-1815, or Susan Miller at (301) 854-5254. The Bureau of Waste Management for the county at 313-6444 will also help you to understand the issue.

After the Mount View Middle School staff beat the Glenwood Middle School staff in a basketball match at Glenwood last month, Shelley Williams, Mount View's band director commented Glenwood's band director David Apple, "Maybe Glenwood should just stick to music."
