Quebec lawmakers say Coventry landfill threatens drinking water
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Quebec lawmakers say some of their residents are possibly getting contaminated drinking water and they want the state of Vermont to do something about it.
The National Assembly of Quebec voted unanimously to permanently ban the discharge of liquid that filters through waste into Lake Memphremagog. The allegations are that the contaminated water came from Casella’s landfill in Coventry.
Darren Perron spoke with Vermont Natural Resources Secretary Julie Moore about what they have discovered and plan to do about it.
