Uniontown dump raises concerns

Beacon Journal (Ohio)
Mark Baskaran, Wayne State professor of geochemistry, presented findings from his research team that completed studies of a 30-acre Industrial Excess Landfill in Uniontown, Ohio. Baskaran said there may be radiation problems and that if the radiation tests are accurate, there could be radiation waste buried in the dump. The Concerned Citizens of Lake Township is urging the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Defense Department to oversee the landfill.
