Summary This package of five stories examined five years of the most recent data available from the Environmental Protection Agency to determine if toxic pollution released by Maryland manufacturers has declined in recent years; it has, by about 43 percent. The computer-assisted analysis of the Toxic Release Inventory also revealed that Maryland's biggest polluter was Westvaco, a paper manufacturer based in Allegany County.
