3/23/02: Headline in the Recorder: Horses poisoned; oil spill suspected. The story is that horses in Conway died last winter and the cause is suspected to be motor oil dumped stored in detergent bottles dumped in Hart Brook upstream of the horses' pasture. This points to the necessity to educate people on the dangers of dumping oil and other car-related chemicals in our environment. To find out how to dispose of motor oil safely, visit our Living Watershed-Wise page.
