Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Wrightsville Beach landfill, North Carolina
Wrightsville Beach wants assessment of forgotten landfill

Surrounded on one side by Wilmington's ritziest gated community and a growing business park on the other, the location just off the busy and prospering Military Cutoff corridor is prime property.

Within walking distance are the Forum and Mayfaire shopping centers for those looking to shop or get a bite to eat.

But there's one problem.

The property along Old McCumber Station Road is Wrightsville Beach's old landfill, and neither town officials nor state regulators are exactly sure what's buried on the heavily wooded five-acre lot.

Officials with the N.C. Division of Waste Management had actually lost track of the old dump until last November, when town officials told regulators they were interested in doing an environmental assessment of the property.
