Methane Mandates Meade Mobilization

The Sun reports that 12 families were evacuated from homes built adjacent to a former landfill at Fort Meade because of concerns about a methane leak. Despite having found the buried World War II-era landfill three years ago, the private developer, Picerne Military Housing, built the homes before the area could be fully assessed.

Perhaps Ft. Meade officials should be put in touch with someone at the EPA's Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP).
