"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen." - Thoreau

Last updated Friday, Aug 1, 2014 8:07 AM
COLUMBIA -- The South Carolina Court of Appeals is ordering Chem-Nuclear to better protect the groundwater from contamination at Barnwell County’s low-level radioactive waste disposal site.

Under the order, the site operator and the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control have 90 days to turn in a plan to reach compliance.
