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.
