The Hidden Truth on Hidden Lane in VA.

October 30, 2009- After numerous lawsuits and court proceedings filed year after year, the state revoked the landfill’s operating permit following a permanent injunction against the site. The landfill was ordered to be closed in October 1983, much to the delight of Broad Run Farms residents and county officials.

The series has explored the migration of methane gas into the CountrySide subdivision, as well as the groundwater contamination with trichloroethylene (TCE) in Broad Run Farms. It has noted how the contamination has gotten worse overtime, spreading to many of the private wells in the subdivision at concentrations significantly higher than the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) maximum contaminant level.
