We’ve followed the saga of the Blue Trail Shooting Range up in Connecticut for a while now. It seems there’s a new twist in this sorry story that’s very strange. It would seem our villain this story, Pat DiNatale, who argued that the reservoir adjacent to the Blue Trail range was contaminated with lead, is taking about $450,000 of said “contaminated” soil from a dredging project on the reservoir to use as topsoil for a grazing field for his cows. See stories here and here. I guess if he’s willing to use it for grazing purposes, he can’t think it’s very contaminated then can he? The soil apparently tests out fine.
There’s always been something very shady with this whole thing.
