Description

Letter to the editor (newspaper unknown) from Eileen Oldham, 5th and Hill community resident. Oldham developed cancer that is believed to have been caused by contaminated groundwater in her community. The letter is a plea for a repeal of the Ground Water Ordinance, which allows contaminated groundwater to remain uncleaned by polluters so long as there is no well drilling in the area.
