Upset with all of the dumping and pollution

To the editor:

I am writing in connection to the prevailing pollution of Negley’s drinking water, to its air pollution and to dump dust which lands on Negley houses, vehicles and play areas for children off and on for the last 20 years. Also to the destruction of Native American (Indian) burial grounds and to more ancient peoples and living areas.

Due to the dump, springs with excellent drinking water have been polluted and destroyed by this harmful dump. Why would anyone consider a dump located above a village when the natural flow of water in this area is down (south) via streams and underground through Negley to join up with the Beaver Creek which eventually goes into the Ohio River?

It is sheer ignorance and very harmful to people and this area to allow the dumping to continue.
