  5. 'Garbage juice' seen as threat to drinking water in Florida Panhandle county

The sample on the left is full of leachate from the Jackson County landfill, the stuff that would be injected into the well. The sample on the right shows leachate after it's been treated at a wastewater treatment plant. The one in the middle is tap water.
