** News 25 TV Report: In the report, Bob Fulton, Dominion Transmission Spokesperson claimed that Dominion's groundwater contamination problems occurred 30 to 40 years ago, before there were environmental laws. I'll take Mr. Fulton at his word that Dominion was polluting groundwater back then as well, however the contamination that the CPMV signs reference happened more recently, in 2003 and 2005. I believe that we did have environmental laws way back in 2003.

Here is the state of PA report about Dominion's 2006 fine of $850,000.
Also, as I read it the "historic" contamination referenced in the PA document happened in the 80's... and again, we had environmental laws then as well.
