Battle over contamination at Watchtower site in Warwick

WARWICK – A slew of companies sued by Watchtower Bible and Tract Society say they don’t bear responsibility for contaminating the Warwick site where the religious group is building its massive world headquarters, and will therefore not pay for it.

Watchtower claims that International Nickel discharged petroleum and oils containing polychlorinated byphenyls – or PCBs – into the wastewater treatment plant, and into the soil and groundwater, thereby contaminating the environment at the property. PCBs, which are probable human carcinogens, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, were banned in the United States in 1979.
