The chemical TCE (a.k.a.  trichloroethylene) has been found responsible for poisoning the water at Camp Lejeune, NC., and according to  EPA waste documents TCE was disposed of by City of Huntington, at Hal Greer Blvd

Ultimately, TCE  has been associated with a variety of deadly illnesses, such as: cancer of the esophagus, lung, breast, bladder or kidney; leukemia; multiple myeloma; myleodysplasic syndromes; renal toxicity; hepatic steatosis; female infertility; miscarriage; scleroderma; and/or neurobehavioral effects or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Considering at least one official has referred to the continuing violations at INCO and elsewhere as “environmental terrorism”, numerous questions abound.

Further, a former worker at Huntington Alloys told HNN that the Pilot Plant in the 60s was used for storage. He has details of a "green goo" being trucked out of the plant and up the hill above Dietz Hollow where it was allegedly dumped.

HNN having been in contact with former workers of Huntington Alloys and/or the Huntington Pilot Plant (Reduction Pilot Plant), an Atomic Energy Commission leased facility (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/ocas/huntpp.html), as well as former workers of the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant including those standing guard when remains of HPP were buried in Piketon, Ohio.
