Low levels of mercury have been found in fish taken from two northern Carroll County ponds near Keystone landfill, but biologists who tested the animals say the levels are not considered dangerous.Environmental Protection Agency officials who are overseeing cleanup of the closed Pennsylvania landfill, a Superfund site, say the tests are encouraging because the levels weren't any higher. But some area residents are skeptical.A more definite answer to what the results mean to the health of humans, farm animals and crops will have to await analysis by biologists and a broader ecological assessment of the area, said Christopher J. Corbett, EPA's site manager for Keystone landfill.
