CityViews 9/24/12: East-side Groundwater Contamination/Utah’s Right to Know



Segment 1:

Contaminants from a former dry cleaner at the VA Hospital are seeping into the groundwater on the east side of Salt Lake City, so much so that the EPA is proposing the site for Superfund status. On Monday, we’ll find out more about the PCE plume at 700 South and 1600 East and the proposed cleanup project.

Segment 2:

Finding out the salary of a public employee or the results of a restaurant health inspection is just a click away, thanks to the online project called Utah’s Right to Know. On Monday, we’ll find out more about the Salt Lake Tribune effort to make public information more accessible.
