Sally Reis is a professor of educational psychology. Her title
was incorrect in the November 16
issue of the Advance.
An article regarding the temporary capping of the University's
landfill in the November 9
issue of the Advance incorrectly stated
that none of the area wells recently tested by the Eastern Highlands
Health District revealed toxins that could be traced to the
landfill. In fact, Robert Miller, director of the EHHD, reports
that 82 wells were tested and that one well, at 80 Hunting Lodge
Road, tested positive for trace amounts of three chemicals Miller
says are "likely" to have emanated from the landfill. The amounts
of chemicals found in the well were below the levels identified
by the federal Environmental Protection Agency as dangerous.
