News12’s “What’s In The Water?” – Part I – Toxic Trails

President of News12 Networks, Pat Dolan began his five part series on Long Island Water quality with Toxic Trails, which examines the growing underground plume of contaminants left in the ground by Grumman and its aerospace manufacturing facilities.
