Hope this is not a repeat thread.
This is a topic that happened a few years back but which I doubt was posted here on ATS.
Several years ago divers found a capped garbage dump under Massachusetts' Quabbin Reservoir, the largest body of water in the Commonwealth, supplying
Boston and the surrounding area with drinking water. The dump was apparently overlooked when the Swift River Valley was flooded because it was
capped, so nobody realized it was there.
This past summer the water supply was threatened by the breaching of water mains, meanwhile people were instructed to boil water to remove harmful
bacteria and pathogens. Though it turns out, the whole time they were drinking debris from a 19th century landfill.
Funny thing is, nobody even realizes this.
It's just another story that was never told.
