"Residents Cope With Toxic Air Threat"

"ASHEVILLE – It was almost 15 years ago when Bob Taylor first smelled the rancid chemical stench emanating from a spring basin on his friend’s property off Mills Gap Road.

An oily sheen glistened on the water, which at the time was used for drinking by residents of three homes.

'This stuff is greasy, it’s shiny and it stinks,' Taylor recalled Saturday of his discovery that July day in 1999. 'I knew something was bad wrong, but I had no idea of the prior knowledge that CTS had been dumping here.'"
