Tests find chemical in Raceway Park well

One of two wells at Spokane Raceway Park is contaminated with a chemical 
thought to cause cancer, according to samples taken by Spokane County.

The results indicate that anyone who buys the property, set to be 
auctioned today, might have to pay for an environmental cleanup. On 
Tuesday, Commissioners Todd Mielke and Mark Richard voted to participate 
in today's auction to purchase the raceway and prevent its closure.

The two wells were tested last week as county leaders considered whether 
to make a bid. The results were made public Wednesday.
