    Producer/Host: Amy Browne

    Today we’re following up on a news story unfolding on the coast in Searsport. Chemical companies have been located on the coast there, at Mack Point, and Kidder Point- near Sears Island –for more than 100 years. A group called Friends of Penobscot Bay has recently obtained records revealing a history of chemical spills, and raising serious questions about the disposal of highly dangerous by-products, possibly in layers up to 14 feet deep, on the shoreline. State and Federal agencies are starting to get involved in the investigation. Plans to dredge the harbor at Mack Point have hit a snag as area lobstermen voice their concerns about what might be stirred up and released into Penobscot Bay.
    We spoke with Ron Huber, director of Friends of Penobscot Bay, earlier today, to get an update on the situation, including what they are finding as they sift through the old DEP records they uncovered
